Flour & grain storage??

Postby BigBill » Sat Oct 06, 2012 2:40 pm

How do you store your longterm flour and grain??

Do you use whole grain and grind it when needed?

Can i grow grain? wheat?
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

At one time Iwas grinding my own flour. Whole grain keeps longer. Whole wheat flour ground at home spoils quickly.
I kept my wheat in food grade plastic buckets. Fill with wheat, stick a Co2 hose in the bottom, and purge the air. Snap on the lid.
Argon would work to, but is more expensive.
Best,
Mike
