Has anyone tried making risotto with whole wheat arborio rice?

I have some in my pantry and I'm making a simple pea-parmesan risotto tonight.
Has anyone tried it? If so, how did it taste? Did it need longer to cook? Any tips?
I do not understand the question - wheat and rice are two different types of grain. What is it? Rice or wheat?
Do you mean brown arborio rice? The rice comes out a bit chewier than white arborio rice and it takes about 55 minute to an hour to make risotto with it.
I did a mushroom risotto with brown rice once, and it took forever, I will never do it again. It's worth it to run to the store and get some white rice. The previous commenter mentioned it takes 55 - 60 minutes, for me it was longer, I didn't time it but I remember it wasted my whole evening stirring that dish.
Sorry everyone- I had a slow moment there. Yes, I meant brown rice. :-/
My husband actually buying some souvlakia (which were amazing) so I didn't end up making the risotto. I should have researched a bit before buying it! Shame it comes out super chewy.
Thanks for the replies!
