I just used an electric grain mill to grind wheat berries. My first time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
My mother in law gave it to me. She inherited it from a friend and never used it herself. So, no instructions. I made flour, so I guess I figured out the opperation alright, but I'm not sure how to clean it. I washed the removable bits, but there are wheatberries and flour dust inside and short of turning it upside down and blowing in it, I'm not sure what to do.<br><br>
Do I just leave the residue in there? Do I throw out my first little bit each time and consider that running out the old stuff?<br><br>
It says it is a Regal Kitchen Pro. I don't know how much variation there is in grain mills . . .<br><br>
Thanks!

I have a different one, but what I do is blow it out with compressed air afterwards. Mine's got stones, so it is way too heavy to turn over.

Thanks for the reply. I don't have a readily available source of compressed air (not in the kitchen anyway) but that sounds like exactly what I need!<br><br>
Hmmm.

On a smaller scale but it may well work: I clean my coffee grinder by grinding rice in it. It's pretty much tasteless and doesn't get the rancid smell most grains get.

Great idea--especially as rice is cheap!<br><br>
I ended up thinking that if I run it a little after all the grains are gone it would blow out the residue. Does that sound right to anyone else?
