Soaking Not Sprouting Grains Before Milling?

Soaking Not Sprouting Grains Before Milling?

Submitted by ithilas on July 26, 2015 – 7:09am.

I have been soaking grains before using them for cooking such as my oatmeal, rice and my beans to remove some of the phytic acid that makes things hard to digest. So far, it’s been working well for me and my dad, who has a very sensitive stomach. However, I am hitting a brick wall when I think about grinding my grains. I have some teff grains and wheat berries which I would like to grind but I would like to soak them beforehand. I know we are not suppose to put wet grains or anything like that in the hand cranked Wondermill I have. I just want to know if anyone has any advice on what to do as I would like to soak my grains, and maybe some nuts later, beforehand before milling them. Do I need to dry them out a period after soaking and rinsing them? Let me know about what I should do. Thanks.
