Milling my own wheat

First, a thanks to all who have provided advice.  I really appreciate it.

Secondly, here's where I'm at now.

I found that www.internet-grocer.net has a warehouse about 5-6 miles 
from my house.  They carry 45 lb superpails of both Hard Red and Hard 
White wheat.  It comes from Walton Feed and is labeled for grinding 
into flour.  The cost is about $27.5 for red and $26.5 for 
white.  There are no Walmarts within 50 miles that carry wheat 
berries.  The nearest health food store is 20 miles away and would 
only have small quantities.  Even the local feed store could not get 
any wheatberries.  While I'm only about 50 miles from the city, 
resources out here are sparce.

I have put Gamma Lids on both pails.  The regular lid is a pain to 
remove.  I like these.  I plan to get some more grains as I gain 
confidence in doing this.  There are some recipes I've come across 
that look interesting.  I have some rye flour to use up before I try 
that.   I too like the idea of grinding just what I need and the 
remainder stays safe and waits for me.

Thanks again,
Mike R.
