This recipe has been written for the C-Series machines with Variable Speed control and Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.
I only have the container that came with my vitamix blender (purchased at Costco). Can I use it to crack brown rice to try some cereal? The recipe specifies a "dry blade container". What is the dif?
The blade is a different design in the dry grains container. It is not suggested to blend dry ingredients in your wet/ regular container. You may see some marring/ etching on the container if trying this in the wet container.
