Cracked Grain in the Nutrimill?? Nutrimill problem?
I'd heard it mentioned that one could make cracked grain in the Nutrimill. So this morning, while I was grinding wheat for flour, I decided to try it out.
There are two knobs. The smaller upper knob is speed control for the motor. High speed is all the way to the left, and low speed to the right. They say to use high for most flour, and low for "very coarse flour". The larger lower dial is on/off and controls how quickly the grains can flow down into the mill, with the coarsest setting to the far right..
I thought that cracked grain could be achieved if I turned both dials all the way to the right. But what happened was that when I turned the motor speed dial to the right, the motor stopped. Back to the left, okay.
So I didn't get my cracked grain. Questions are (1) Is this behavior normal (or, What gives?)? and (2) How can I get cracked grain?
