The Flaker Mill head flakes soft grains and is popular for fresh homemade oatmeal, making a hearty flake from oat groats (oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than store-bought flaked oats. Hopper is 6 x 3.5 inches (dia. x height).
Oats are a naturally soft grain and more of our customers roll oats than any other grain in their Family Grain Mill flaker—but many other grains including wheat, rye, barley and millet can be flaked too, with a little preparation. These grains are hard and brittle, and would normally shatter rather than crush. To soften them, hold them under running water briefly in a strainer. Then spread the grains on a cloth or towel to let them dry over night or for 3-4 hours. This time will vary depending on the grain used, but a little experimentation will help optimize the process. The softened grain will crush and flatten, rather than shattering. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for you to assimilate the minerals in the grain.
