Tastes bad

My freshly milled flour tastes BAD!

January 9, 2011 - 1:33am -- jokiwi

I'm new to milling. I live in Italy, and I have tried using "hard wheat". It always seems to have quite a strong, slightly acidic taste. Is that the way it should be, or am I doing something wrong? Am I supposed to leave the flour to "prove" for a few days before using it, or can I use it immediately?

Thanks for your help.
