Can cracked rye be made into flour?

I got my hands on some beautiful cracked rye, and I'm thinking about finely grinding some of it to make flour. My question is: would it work? What type of flour would I get? Would it work for sourdough rye bread making?

It will work. 

You will get whole grain rye flour. 

Yes it will make sourdough rye.

Happy Baking,   Jeff

Thank you! That makes me happy! My usual store is out of flour.
