Advantage for whole grains would be the lack of a shell making nutes more easily available (better flushes).
Disadvantage Cost would be more with whole grains.
Advantage WBS would be an extended cropping cycle if you consider that an advantage. It's way cheaper
Disadvantage WBS not the best fruiter IME.

not much from what i hear. where you will find a difference is in spawning wbs or whatever grain you want to use to horse poo.

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

If I were you, I'd mix both. Add 20-50% brown rice to the WBS. I'd soak both for 24 hours, then simmer the WBS about 10-20 minutes, and the brown rice, like 30+ minutes, until it becomes quite soft. The WBS should be less soft, and no, or few kernels exploded. Then mix them in the strainer. My How I Do Grain link is similar (if you want pictures for what I'm describing) but rye instead of brown rice, similar things though. But it gives you a nice mix of very moist grains, and some drier..helps make nice even water content.
