|Hard won flour|
This is a little over six cups of hand ground flour. We did not grind it on the finest setting because as coarse a flour as this is, it was a bitch to get ground.
Let me be perfectly clear it was not the fault of the mill! Although I can see why people take advantage of the belt capability of the fly wheel, thigh muscles being what they are and all.
No, it was the fault of my... what's the word I want? Ambitious? Overly optimistic? ...design for a platform for the mill. When the manufacturer says that you need to bolt it down for optimal use, they mean to bolt it down to something heavy. Something heavy, like, oh say, the Rock of Gibraltar.
|I like this one 'cause it's groovy *|
So I think what we're going to do is have me make a really heavy kitchen table (somewhere in the future) and bolt it to the kitchen table. Because it really needs to hold the hell still while you grind your grain. Hold. Still.
The next three pizzas are going to taste really, really good.
