Whoo hoo, first 50# bag of King Arthur Sir Lancelot Flour

August 14, 2012 - 1:51pm -- Ocelaris
Forums: 

Just picked up my 50# bag of King Arthur Sir Lancelot High Gluten Flour from my local distributor in Yonkers, NY, otto brehm. $26 for a 50/lb bag. I had been avoiding picking one up because I always hated going into professional stores as a hobbyist (in other hobbies it was painful), but this was easy and they were very nice. Had a great selection as well. Probably won't be back for a while, but much less hassle than I thought it would be.

Giusto's in South SF, KAF in SF

I saw Giusto's Peak Performer 50#bag at Whole Foods in Redwood City and wanted to buy it.

Of course I was told they have to check the price but at the end they didn't sell it to me and I was told

that someone will contact me about the price. I asked twice since then but never got any answers.

Have anyone got that flour from WF? Maybe you tried Giusto's mill in S. SF? I don't want to buy online from their web site, it's too $$.

Where do you get bulk flour in the Bay Area w/o having to drive to Petaluma?

Bulk bread flour in Nanaimo, BC?

February 19, 2011 - 11:57pm -- Yumarama

Anyone know if there's some place in Nanaimo or nearby where one can procure unbleached bread flour in large size bags (20kg)?


We just moved here and don't quite have the lay of the land yet nor know if this sort of stuff is unavailable here on the island. I would like to presume there is a source since there are a number of bakeries who would need wholesale supplies too.


Thanks for any heads up you can give.

Costco ConAgra Harvest Flour

OK so I've been having an AWFUL time trying to make my bread come out right and I finally found out what's wrong.


ConAgra Harvest All Purpose Flour is about the same protein content as biscuit mix.  It's barely above a cake flour. At least what's available in MY area is.


I had to call ConAgra to get this information and if you are in some other part of the country it's going to be different.  Unlike King Arthur, Con Agra does not mill their wheat to meet any particular definition of what we would typically think of as "bread flour" or "all purpose flour".

Just made a trip out to Central Milling, which is actaully called "Keith Giusto Bakery Supply". They have moved into a new location. 755 Southpoint Blvd, Petaluma, CA. 866-979-2253


They have a very large selection of organic bulk flours. Now, you can call ahead, and they will pack 5lb bags. They ask that you please call ahead though, otherwise, you will wait for some time. If you are buying in 25 or 50lb bags, no problem.


Under construction, is a Bakery School, on site, that will be open soon.


Please email me your contact, if you are intersted in bulk flour. We were told that if enough of us order, they will deliver to SF, as they deliver to the Ferry Bldg twice a week.

Time for Storage of Flour

June 21, 2010 - 12:34pm -- parsley
Forums: 

Another 'lurker' coming into the light. I live in Puerto Rico--in the mountains where the temperatures are mild and humidity is usually high.


I have 2 issues (at least)


STORAGE TIME: I have been happy baking with KAF bread flour which I bring in my suitcase after travels in the US. Now I want to scale up my baking and have access to bulk flours through a food co-op. How much can I buy without serious degradation of quality in 1 month of storage at ambient temperatures(65-82 F)?

Durum flour

January 5, 2010 - 11:41am -- wmtimm627
Forums: 

I recently found an Indian market that sells durum flour in 20 lb bags. To most of us, this is semolina flour. I'm having a hard time finding decent recipes for my bread machine that use this hard wheat flour. The best one I've used so far uses half bread flour and half semolina. It's delicious, but I'd like something different.
