I finally built my bike powered grain mill. I am very excited about not having to do at least 12 cups a week of flour via hand crank. If anything it makes you appreciate your food more. Another thing I like about it is that it was 100% built with stuff I had or found, and 95% of it was trash. I love building stuff from trash, to me that is recycling. If you guys haven't baked your own bread or ground your flour, I highly recommend it. The taste is so much better than any thing in the store, with good ingredients and less crap, just my opinion. Well thanks for letting me boast about my grain mill.

Also where to you find it best to get the dried goods to mill?

Great question. Any locally sourced stuff?

I wasn't prepared when I saw this. At first I thought 'whatever', but that reaction was wrong. Great job. I envy your creativity and ability to do this.

This is fantastic. I am in the very baby steps of this and could really use some good advice. I am looking into getting a mill, any recommendations? Also where to you find it best to get the dried goods to mill?

Are you suer that's not one of those chain reaction gizmos like you see on a loony tunes cartoon?

That is so cool. How long does it take to grind 12 lbs? Are the kids having fun working it?? We have a reclining bike I'd be more motivated to use if I could figure how to do this with it! I hope we are well enough to see you guys tomorrow.

That's outstanding, Kenny! I love it that you built it out of stuff you had laying around or found. If only I had such talent. You're great!
