No the wet blade container will not do what the dry can do. In the past, when I ate more macrobiotic, I would grind grains and make cereal. Making butters, like almond would work well with this. Or if you are one who likes to make bread. I find this container very useful and the Things you could do,with it are endless. I definitely see the need for it.

So you cannot grind grains using the traditional container? I thought the standard "wet" blade would also grind up grains into flour, no?

Gotcha. I love the idea of the dry blade. This is the blade they used for the dough also, and grinding the Parmesan cheese? I had meant to watch today but never got the chance. Just caught a couple of quick demonstrations tonight.Last edited on 2/17/2013

Oh my, for the last twenty five + years I have been grinding my grains and kneading all my dough with the wrong container..I now need to let BB&B know this.

I didn't mean to imply that you can't use the wet blade for grinding. You can. You can also wash your hair with Tide but it won't work as well as shampoo.

This is what the Vitamix Step by Step Guide has to say on the matter :

Dry Blades and The Dry Container: This container has been fitted with blades designed specifically for processing dry material., such as grinding wheat, cereal grains and coffee…. with the least amount of pull on the motor…

It is possible to use the wet blade container for grain grinding and kneading doughs, but the wet blades are not as efficient as the dry blades in this application. Grain grinding will cosmetically mar the (wet) container.
