definition of "first clear" for stone ground?
Going back to square one...
Does stone milling produce similar spectrum of flours as roller milling? Or, in other words, isn't stone milling a single pass process breaking the grain into uniform size particles, thus making impossible sifting, "bolting", and "extraction"?
If, in roller milling, "straight grade" is the starchiest 72-76% of the spectrum, can "first clear" be thought of as 100% (whole grain) extraction minus the straight grade? Does this apply to stone milling too?
Would appreciate any reference to a (text)book on the subject.
