Cracked Wheat?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

 

Please forgive my lack of knowledge....I have jumped on the band wagon for grinding and making my own bread.  Today I stocked up at my local bulk store.  I got cracked wheat kernels thinking I could grind this into whole wheat flour.  I started following a recipe from Peter Reinhart's The Bread Baker's Apprentice for whole wheat flour, using a soaker and a poolish from the cracked wheat kernels ground up. 

 

Now my question - is cracked wheat ground up whole wheat flour?  Will my bread turn out? 

 

I hope my question can be answered soon before I continue the process....thanks in advance!

Unfortunately cracked wheat is a term that gets loosely thrown around a lot. It gets used to describe quite a few different products. Do you know if your cracked wheat was cooked at all in the manufacturing process?
