Flour affecting taste?
A question please. Is it possible for the taste of a bread recipe to change if the flour used is changed? I have a bread that I make all the time, it uses a cup of starter. I always use King Arthur regular flour (AP) and the taste is really good, changes in your mouth as you chew. I had to use another brand as the store was out of KA. It is a well known leading brand and I thought nothing of it. However, this morning when I toasted the first slice from this bread, I noticed something was missing and I could not put my finger on it. Bland. Mediocre taste. Then it hit me, I had changed flours. Am I making more of this than is really possible, is it my imagination? Nothing else had changed but the flour. Thanks in advance for any replies. Jean P.(VA)
