Milling Whole Grain Sorghum


After writing the post about milling your own gluten-free flour, I decided that I really should try buying and milling whole grain sorghum. I bought this sorghum from Twin Valley Mills. They only sell 30 pounds, but you can buy smaller quantities of flour. I paid about $15 for the sorghum and $25 for shipping! You couldn’t get 30 pounds of sorghum flour for $40 though.


In the picture on the right you see two bowls of flour. The one on the left is Bob’s Red Mill sorghum flour and the one on the right is the flour I milled. I couldn’t tell any difference by looking at it. When I rubbed the flour between my fingers, mine was slightly courser. I did not have the mill set to the finest setting so I will adjust that next time. I let you know how it does with baking.

    I’ve milled millet at home, but I haven’t tried it with sorghum!! I love sorghum flour though! great job!

  3. What kind of mill do you use?

  4. Robin, I use what is now called the Wonder Mill. You can see it in this post.

    Or go to the gluten-free diet tab at the top of the page and look for Milling Your Own Gluten Free Flour. It’s near the top.

  5. I understand the Whisper Mill is no longer made. I just bought the NutriMill by L’Equip and plan to mill sorghum, millet and rice. Have you ever done any starch? I live in a rural area and the mill has become a necessity.

    • I buy my starches. If your mill can handle tapioca, then you wouldn’t have to buy that starch, but I don’t think there is any way to do potato starch.
