Osttiroler Getreidemühlen model A 100 110V grain mill for sale on eBay

January 19, 2013 - 11:36am -- Crider

Rare find. I wish I had the bucks to buy it myself. As of this writing, it's going for only $102.50, with a day or so before the auction ends. They look so cool. This one has a 10cm stone. I went to their website and they still make them. I had no idea they ever exported them to the US.

Here's the link:

Home-milled porridge?

June 18, 2012 - 4:57am -- kolobezka

I got a Komo mill from my friend 3 week ago. It's great! The smell of fresh flour is awesome :)

It works very well for bread making and I'm now wondering how it could be used to make regular morning cereal. In Germany a "FrischKornBrei" is quite popular but the grain (ground into coarse flour) is not cooked, only soaked with cold water, so I'm not sure if it is really well digestible.

Where to buy Soft Red Wheat in Ohio

April 24, 2011 - 3:24pm -- catfuzz

I am looking for someplace local to buy soft red wheat.  I am located north of Cincinnati, Ohio.  The only 'local' place - at a farmer market, that has soft wheat wants like $7.50 for a 5lb bag!  Okay, this just seems a little high to me considering I can get a 25lb bag of hard wheat for $12 and 5lbs isn't going to last me very long.

I can mail order from for $2.10/5lb bag, but shipping really starts to add up when you get 20+lbs.

decent inexpensive grain mill

I just got some fresh wheat berries and I want to grind them into flour. I tried using my beer grinders but they didn't work at all so I had to use my coffee grinder. 

Please take a look at my blog site!

I just made some fresh wheat bread, it's awesome! But the coffee grinder takes forever..

New Nutrimill - now I have some questions...

March 31, 2011 - 4:33pm -- catfuzz

I am so excited!! I received my Nutrimill grain mill today!! 

I ran 2 cups of wheat through the mill as per the instructions....I have a couple of questions.

1. After milling, do you break down the machine and wash all of it?? If not, which pieces do you wash?  Do you take the rubber gaskets off and wash?

Good Grain Mill

February 22, 2011 - 6:33pm -- patman23

I have a viking 7qt mixer and was going to get the grain mill attachment for it.  I wanted to see if anyone has used it and get their feedback.  I have never milled my own flour before but reading some of the posts on here makes me think that Im mising out.  So... A few questions...

1.  Asside from the Viking Mixer Attahcment, what Grain Mills do you recommend?

2.  What kind of grain (wheats, corn etc) is recemmended?

Looking for a broken Whisper Mill for Parts

April 20, 2010 - 8:59am -- Nickisafoodie

Hi All, I have an older Whisper Mill that is probably 10 years old under "Grainmaster WhisperMill" - this made the original Whisper Mill but went bankrupt due to lifetime warranties.  The name was aquired by the current owners of Whispermill which is identical in terms of key parts; now being sold under WonderMill.  There were some problems and most can be fixed if you have the parts.

I'm so excited. I just ordered a new mill. I can hardly wait to start milling my own grains. Since I bake almost exclusively with whole grains this is a big deal for me. I've been ordering my flour out of state, about once or twice a month so I figure it will pay for itself in about a year.

There is a place very close to the house that sells grains in bulk so I'm pretty set, although I don't know if they have specialty grains like spelt, durum and kamut.

Now I just need to bake a bunch of whole wheat this week to use up the month old flour that I have. I'm refreshing my starter now, going to start some of my "1-2.5-3" loaves tonight.
