You will want to adjust the amount of grain you add to the hopper so the ﬂ our bowl does
not overﬁ ll.
Overﬁ lling the ﬂ our bowl may cause the mill to clog. The bowl will hold 21 to 22 cups of
ﬂ our. You will get about 21 cups of ﬂ our from 13 cups of hard wheat when milled at a
medium texture. This texture is ideal for most breads.
The amount of ﬂ our you get from a cup of grain varies with the type of grain and how
ﬁ nely it is milled. Fine milling produces a greater volume of ﬂ our than coarse milling.
Soft grains like oats and beans will produce a greater volume of ﬂ our. With
the hopper extension ring in place only ﬁ ll hopper
overﬁ lling the ﬂ our bowl!
The Motor Speed Control Knob (Upper Knob):
The motor speed helps determine the texture of your ﬂ our or meal.
For most ﬂ our, upper knob should remain to the left.
For very coarse ﬂ our and medium ﬁ ne corn meal, knob should be set to the right.
For heavy ﬂ our & dense textured breads, select a middle setting. Adjust for desired
results in the future based on your experience.
NOTE: Always allow the mill to run for 15 to 20
seconds with the knob turned all the way to the
left before adjusting the knob to your desired
setting in the middle or the right.
The Grain Feed Rate Knob (Lower Knob):
This is the ON-OFF switch and a valve that controls how
quickly grains can ﬂ ow into the mill. (You can look under
the inlet cover and see how this valve opens and closes.
Instructions for better understanding how your mill
works are on page 4).
For ﬁ ner ﬂ our set the knob towards 11:00 – 12:00.
(Most grains will not ﬂ ow at less than a 10:00 position on the knob.)
For coarse ﬂ our turn the knob toward the right.
Large items (like beans) won't begin to ﬂ ow until the knob is turned far to the right.
Texture results also vary with the kind of grain being milled. Soft grains, such as
oats, mill much ﬁ ner than hard grains. Hard wheat mills more coarsely than soft
Larger grains such as legumes or rice will mill slowly while small grains like wheat or
millet will mill quickly.
NOTE: For optimum milling turn the knob all the way to the right for 15 seconds,
so grain will start to ﬂ ow freely. Then turn the knob back left to your desired
