Best equipment for grinding large amounts of rice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I make large amounts of Horchata concentrate for our restaurant and would like to find a better and quicker way to grind my rice. The last batch I made, I used 72 cups of rice. My blender is not giviing me a good grind and can't handle all that rice. Does anyone have any advice as to what would work well for grinding these large amonts of rice. I would like to get a very fine ground rice. 

 

I would also like to grind cinnamon sticks and dry peppers. I hear that coffee grinders may be good, has anyone actually used them for rice. I appreciate any helpful advice.

Any good flour mill can handle rice. I would go with one that is more to the commercial side to handle that amount on a daily basis. If it is once a week or so a smaller mill could handle it. I recently picked up a Retsel mill that is hand cranked to replace the impact mill I had that exploded when I missed a stone.  This is a very good brand of mill you may want to look into http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/country_living_mill.aspx

Coffee grinder is going to die after 72 cups of rice, especially if that is on a weekly basis.

 

If you have a kitchen aid, they make a grain attachment that works really well. Most of their other attachments are cheap feeling where this one is made of metal.

The Kitchen Aid grain mill is not known for working well to create a fine flour. That is something to look into also. Impact mills will make very fine flour but miss a stone or anything hard and it destroys them.
