KoMo Fidibus 21 Grain Mill by Wolfgang Mock (the not so little brother of the KoMo Classic)
The Wolfgang grain mill is a world class mill designed by master craftsman, Wolfgang Mock. The Wolfgang mills are precision engineered and imported from Germany, assuring the highest quality materials and craftsmenship.
Small but powerful: At a mere 12-1/2″ tall, the Fidibus 21 performs comparably to larger mills. Inside its attractive housing of furniture grade beech plywood resides a 250 watt motor capable of grinding 3.5 oz of flour per minute at the finest setting. The Fidibus 21, as with all KoMo mills can run continuously so you can refill and keep grinding for whatever quantity of flour you need. The high quality electric motor drives the more than rock hard corundum/ceramic millstones. All Wolfgang mills will provide many many years of reliable service. The generous 12 year warranty stands behind each one. The Fidibus 21 is well suited to most small family miling needs and a valuable tool for anyone exploring the joys of cooking with natural foods.
Baking with your own freshly milled flour couldn’t be easier. Adjust the degree of fineness of flour (from very fine to very course) by simply rotating the hopper clockwise or counter clockwise, add nearly 2 lbs of grain to the hopper and you’re ready to go. Cleanup is minimal to nonexistent.
All dry grains can be ground, including wheat (both hard and soft), oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum and dent (field) corn. Sprouted grains can also be milled provided they are thoroughly dried first. It will also grind spices, lentils and dry beans (pinto, red, garbanzo, kidney, etc.) It isn’t suitable for herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame, popcorn, or fibrous materials.

Wolfgang freshly milled grains are far more nourishing and flavorful than flours which are weeks or even days old. Freshly milled flour from the Wolfgang exits the shoot at a temperature only sightly warm to the touch.
Whole grains begin to oxidize and spoil as soon as they’re milled, causing a loss in nutritional value and flavor. At a minimum, it’s important to check the shelf date on store bought whole grains and refrigerate or freeze what you keep on hand.
Ideally, purchase whole grains in bulk and mill at home as needed. Whole grains keep indefinitely and hold their nutritional value. Milling your own grains with a Wolfgang grain mill takes less than a minute and cleanup about the same.
