I've been wondering if grinding my own flour would be a good idea. I don't know the first thing about it. Would someone please enlighten me. Is it very cost effective? Are wheat berries what I need to buy? Where can they be purchased? Is the process messy? What equipment would I need and how expensive? Will my baked goods taste different? Thanks for your replies.

I don't do it myself (yet), but here's what I know: Wheat berries are MUCH more shelf-stable than flour. Flour is said to be good for 4-6 months, wheat berries for 2-3 years. Wheat berries are also less expensive. I've seen them in health food stores and in bulk bins. You could probably buy them through a co-op.
