A question about wheat

I came home from work today to find that a friend had left a five gallon 
bucket of stone ground whole wheat.  Wow, what a friend!  My question is, 
short of sending it to a lab, how can I determine if it is hard or soft 
wheat.  She received the original unground grain from a friend of hers and 
does not know any of the details about its growth.  I am in the process of 
baking a tested recipe with it and it appears to be doing fine.  But I 
would like to be a bit more certain about protein content.  Does anyone 
know of a simple at home test to determine protein content?  Any help would 
be appreciated.
