Can one be a hippie without milling your own rice flour? Absolutely!
Can one mill your own rice flour without feeling like a hippie? I don’t think so.
Now, before you start getting all worried, you can totally just buy rice flour, you do not need to mill your own. But shortly after getting diagnosed with celiac Jared did some math and figured with the amount of GF flour we’d be using it would be cheaper for us to buy a good mill and mill our own rice flour.
If you are interested in milling your own rice flour instead of buying it, we have this grain mill and I’d recommend it. We had a different mill for the first while but it ended up dying a loud and smoky death (while spreading rice flour all over my kitchen).
This is the best gluten free all-purpose flour we’ve ever tried (and we’ve tried a lot), it can be used as a replacement for gluten filled all-purpose flour cup for cup in most recipes.
