I drink around a quart a day of raw, whole Jersey milk.  I'm about 1 size larger than I'd like to be (on my frame somewhere between 5-10 lbs.), but that's from a winter of too much snacking, there...

Oven will work fine to dehydrate grains, if the temp goes low enough to just dry and not roast.  Mine has a warming drawer, so I use that.  I have an Excalibur dehydrator, but it's easier to use the...
