Grinding rice, tapioca and quinoa?

Hey all,

My husband has an allergy to wheat. Thankful to have a mill & mix I can grind Kamut, Spelt and more. Recently I tried out some rice bread recipe's I used to make (daughter with Autism and allergies) and I forgot how good it can taste. I'd like to grind my own rice, tapioca & quinoa but wonder if anyone else does this? Any tips or advice?


Thanks!

It depends on the mill/stone/manufacturer. I would check your mill's manual or website, there you can find what you can grind and what not. I think rice and quinoa should be okay, but I'm not sure about tapioca.

The Mill & Mix (from Brigham City Utah) is no longer in business but I'll see what I can find online.  I appreciate your feedback!

My electric stone mill is a Howas Billy 100, a small family size mill. The instructions for this mill is to mill brown rice at setting 1, which is fairly fine, the same setting for the whole wheat. I use this mixed with bread flour to coat my bannetons and wooden peels.

Quinoa is 0.5, no mention of tapioca.

Cheers,

Gavin
