It looks like if I go with manual, I should seriously consider the country living mill based on the glowing reviews, but a wonder junior may also be okay. I have tasked my dad into digging through the junk collection, as I am looking into this, I have a vague memory as of 15 years ago or so we had some sort of Corona style grinder from a garage sale. The question is did it move with us or not....

I am considering my own laziness, and thinking about electric. As a lot of the recipes I use take 5 cups of flour, I am more likely to use it if its electric. The Komo and the wondermill seem to be the easiest to find, though the nutrimill is also available.

Those of you with the whisper/wonder mills, what do you think of them (other than the noise level?)



I got a wonder mill jr and didn't really like it. It was way to hard to mill flour fine enough to actually use.

It's a great idea to do it in a meat grinder. how many passes does it take before it is milled into flour?

That is good to know. I tried making starter from a dehydrated kit, but it flopped :/
Fortunately I was able to get some from a friend

It would not leaven bread.....just thicken the dough. In order to leaven bread you need yeast either manmade from the store or natural yeast from a sourdough starter. I'm assuming you want a gluton free option, try looking up gluten free sourdough starter.

We get ours from Azure standard. I would not recommend grain from a feed mill as it is not meant for human consumption. It won't kill you or anything, but the grain is not very well seperated from the chaffe.

Good to know that it can be frozen. I will try that out!

I just thought I would talk about some of my favorite recipes. I have only been making sourdough for a few months, and I love it! I have dabbled a little in making loaves, but mainly make small treats. We've made and thoroughly enjoy bagels, pizza dough, biscuits, english muffins, cinnamon rolls, and pie crusts. Additionally we can make some amazing crackers from the discard!!
All our recipes we have gotten from the blog at little spoon farm.

We can get bulk grains for sprouting from our local mill.

My 2 cents is that if you plan to start a business in acupuncture or use it for income, then go for it!! It would be a great way to earn money to pay for your homestead.
If you are just doing it for a hobby, that is a steep price to pay.
If you get good livestock and keep them on either fresh grass or deep bedding, then you will have very minimal health issues and wouldn't need acupuncture, and if you did need it on occasion then it would be a lot cheaper to pay an acupuncturist to come in and provide treatment than to do it yourself.
Just a couple thoughts
