I wanted to know:
- Does Hard Red Wheat and Hard White Wheat grind into the same amounts of flour
- How much flour does 10 cups of whole grain wheat equate to
- How long does it take to grind 10 cups of whole grain wheat into flour
I measured 10 cups of Hard Red Wheat, it took 15 minutes to grind and it produced about 16 1/2 cups of flour.
For 10 cups of Hard White Wheat, it took about 18 minutes to grind and it produced about 17 1/2 cups of flour.
I was surprised with the different amounts of flour. I did check the flour catching bowl a few more times with the Hard White Wheat compared to the Hard Red Wheat so that could explain the time difference.
Some people say that the Hard White Wheat has a more mild flavor than the Hard Red Wheat. It is difficult to tell in the picture above but the Hard Red Wheat Flour is definitely darker than the Hard White Wheat Flour.
There is nothing better than super fresh whole wheat flour! I am amazed how much better my bread tastes and I swear it raises faster too. I've been using this fresh whole wheat flour in 6-Grain Waffles (seriously its ridiculous how many of these I am eating!), Whole Wheat French Bread, and coming soon will be another bread recipe comparing the different flours! Grinding the wheat was easy enough and the results are worth doing a batch or so a month to ensure that I always am using fresh flour.
What recipes are you using whole wheat flour for?
