Hi I bought unhulled barley and oats from Azure Standard. I have been using my Vitamix grinder for small amounts, mixed with some kelp and cultured milk for an afternood supplement, along with Magil's premade mix. Well, I'm going on a trip, almost out of Magil's till the end of next week. I don't want to wear out my Vitamixer on a whole bunch of grain, so my question is this: If it isn't ground up, does it go through them whole? If it does, I'm going to have to break down and buying some laying feed from the local feed store (Purina ) Amy from WA PS I've tried searching on Google but keep coming up with barley that has already been h ulled.
