qualities needed for a solid, long-term relationship. It's peacefully

The FLOCMAN delivers 3.5 ounces of deliciously fresh grain flakes per
minute, and flake thickness is adjustable from .3mm to .65mm. It's
suitable for all types of grain except corn, as well as crushing oil
seeds such as poppy, and spices. The crushing unit, with
its tapered stainless steel rollers, is mounted in a gracefully sculpted
housing of solid beechwood. Cleaning the mill is easy and no additional tools are required. The FLOCMAN comes with a beautifully designed, handmade ceramic bowl, as pictured.
Besides oats (a naturally soft grain) many other grains including
wheat, rye, barley and millet can be flaked too, with a little
preparation. These grains are normally dry and hard. To soften them,
hold them under running water briefly in a strainer. Then spread the
grains on a cloth or towel to let them dry over night or for at least
3-4 hours. This time will vary depending on the grain used, but a little
experimentation will help optimize the process. The softened grain will
flatten nicely into flakes, similar to commercially available rolled
oats. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic
process which makes it easier for your metabolism to assimilate the
minerals in the grain.
