HELP! New @ grinding my own wheat
I just bought a grain grinder and I bought Wheat Montana white hard spring wheat. I ground some of it and it mixes way different. When I use my recipe that I had been using it takes about 1 and a half cups more flour as it is really wet and sticky. Is it normal for it to do this? I ground it on the finest setting. I have read that mixing too much flour in will make it heavy which is what happened with the first batch. Is there something I am missing with this grinding process? I have even tried mixing it with the regular amount of flour and then letting it sit for 45 minutes before I kneaded it. I had read that the whole grains will soak up the moisture but that didn't seem to make a difference, I still had to knead in about a cup and a half of flour. Any thoughts that you have are greatly appreciated.
