Q on Flaking Mills. Are they worth it?
As everyone here knows, I am an extremely happy and satisfied owner of a GrainMaker model 99 mill. Something the Bitterroot Co also sells is a "Flaking Mill," shown here.
I'm trying to understand the uses of a flaking mill. I get that I can crush oats for making oatmeal. Can I run wheat and/or ancient grains through it? Would I even want to do so?
I read it can be used in beer making and spirit distilling. Does it have any application in bread baking? What types of bread-making would having a flaking mill be useful?
Thanks in advance.
