Hello and looking for grain Mills in CT - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Hello and looking for grain Mills in CT

    Hey all,

    I'm new to this forum and so far the information on here has been an incredible resource.

    I'm starting a little bread bakery with a wood fire oven in CT, and trying to source local ingredients as much as possible. I have a source of Hard Red Spring Wheat but so far no place to mill it. I am wondering if anyone knows of a mill in CT or MA where I could grind grain. Thanks for the help!

    That's a tough one: Connecticut really isn't the heartland of the grain industry anymore. It might be worth a call to this place, from Thomas Register:
    Starch Grinding Mills Suppliers serving Connecticut
    Displaying: 1 to 1 out of 1 result
    Entoleter LLC - Hamden, CT
    Company Profile: Mills Use Centrifugal Impact Energy To Pulverize & Deagglomerate Dry Powders & Slurries. Applications Include Foods, Chemical Processing, Pharmaceuticals & Corn Wet Milling
    They might know where to send you. My idle guess would be that central Pennsylvania would be the closest spot with an actual grain mill.

      We mill our own for use at home. We use a rather noisy and ironically named "Whisper Mill," but my parents have a stone mill. I don't know if you would wear one out using it commercially, but you might want to look into it.
