Hi,

I'm groing millet. But the problem is, I don't know how to dehull it. Since it is almost useless without dehulling it (only animal feed and I dont have chickens or other animals).
I'd like if you have an idea.

Greetings,

Matis

I tried grinding them without a big force but the only thing that happened is that some stayed untouched while other broke. But they weren't dehulled...

I tried milling them coarse-that left it as meal with a bunch of broken hull pieces. I then sifted it and second ground to final flour. It works but is a LOT OF WORK!
