Where to get coarsely ground soft wheat flour in Australia? For Irish 'brown bread' (soda bread).

August 23, 2012 - 8:41pm -- Farmer Elly


I'm in Brisbane, Australia. Wondering if anyone knows where I might source coarse milled whole wheat flour milled from soft wheat (soft red winter wheat would be great). I'm trying to find out for my mum who misses the real Irish brown bread (soda bread made with whole wheat flour). I'm a sourdough baker so soft wheat is new to me.

I've seen that King Arthur sell flour especially for this purpose, but can't see that it's stocked anywhere in Australia. I don't think they ship this far either (well at a price I can afford anyway).

Any ideas?

Hi guys,

I'm so glad to have found such an informative, vibrant and very much alive forum like this. 

I'm a student from Adelaide, South Australia and i love to cook in my spare time.  Recently, being a typical student living on a typical student income, i have decided to start baking my own bread.  This is for two reasons, 1. because it's loads cheaper than buying it. and 2. I love the beautiful taste and texture of proper bread that is worthy of decent toppings and that just tastes good on its own.
