Thank you for your response. I agree that waltonfeed.com is an excellent source of information. The corn I mentioned receiving via Montpelier was supplied through a distributor of Walton Feed.
I assume you grind your corn into meal. What kind of mill do you use and is it the same one with which you grind your wheat? If so how does the coarseness of the meal compared to stone ground corn? What home mill for dry grain would you recommend?

We have a ka and got the mill to go with it. Yes we are in the process of changing over to whole grans. My ka mill is to be brushed out when we change grains. I will use the same mill . GO with a small grind If its to fine turn to a larger one, not the other way around be cause the larger gets stuck then we had to take it apart and brush it out. We only wash it once to renove the oil fron the factory. The only stone ground corn I have had came from the maeket. So I don't know. Try milling hard white wheat and make som bread and store bought will never come through your dor again.

Thanks Janet for your advice and experience. The grain mill is one of the few KA attachments I don't have.

I'm certain you're right.
Thanks again!
