A Frustrating Milling Question for the Beginning Miller
So you have this brand new mill that you're just itching to use on some wheat berries so you can make this fantastic tasting new bread. You like the typical white bread, either made with commercial yeast or sourdough and a dark rye.
Now you want to pull the trigger and order a 50# bag of wheat berries! The question is what to order!
It seems to me from my reading that wheat berries come in three categories and of combinations thereof, Winter/Spring, Hard/Soft, Red/White. Are there also differing categories for rye?
Depending on which bread you're wanting to make, which combination of the above three categories do you want to purchase to use with your new mill? Is it Winter Hard White, or Spring Soft Red, or a Winter Soft Red etc. that's going to open your eyes on the first bite of your new found bread.
