Up until now I have always mainly bought Bobs Red Mill flours because of their manufacturing practices. It seems though that if I eat too much (even just a sandwich) of something made from their flours I start having "gluten reactions". Just wondering what brands those of you that are super sensitive use? I would love to grind my own but I don't have a way to grind it and not sure if it's more expensive that way or not. If you do grind your own where do you get your whole grains??

Can I add a question here? What would everyone's favorite grinder be?
For large amounts? and for small amounts (1-2 cups)?
(Hope you don't mind me sneaking in this question :unsure: .)

I grind my own. I mentioned my grinder in your other post. I started out just using an inexpensive coffee grinder until I was sure that would be something I wanted to do. It's way cheaper to grind your own than to buy flour.

I get whole grain sorghum from Twin Valley mills. It's on the order form on their website. I used Lundberg rice, though I'm currently off it. For millet my best source was Eden Organic, buckwheat, birkett Mills.

It's important to sort and wash before grinding. I find "other grains" in my whole grains regularly. That's probably why gluten-free flour got me. I guess it's a small enough amount so that it doesn't bother other celiacs. Funny to think that I am sorting through enough grains to find less than 20 parts in a million. I must have sorted through a half million grains or so, based on how many other grains I've come across.

I got an old Hobart grinder off E-bay. Monster heavy duty thing. A farmer used it to grind corn for his critters. I don't use it much but it would grind an elephant if you cut it up small enough. Not real fine elephant meal, but not to rough either. I used it to grind split peas for flour. Great for instant pea soup. Weighs 50 lbs though, so not a lite weight.
