Central Milling Bread Flour

November 13, 2012 - 9:25pm -- vircabutar

Hello all,

I've seen old posts where folks would take a trip together and split bags of central milling flour. I was wondering if anyone has a good stock of bread flour (any kind would be great) and would be willing to share, or if anyone would like to take a trip together to Petaluma to get some flour sometimes soon/before the holiday season starts. 

Let me know! 


Thanks, Ray

Adjustments for type of flour

September 4, 2011 - 11:16pm -- GregS

I like to make standard hydration sourdough and french-type breads.  Here in Hawaii, the only bulk-type flour I can reasonably afford is the ConAgra Harvest Blend bread flour, sold by COSTCO. I can purchase 25 pounds for the price of 10 pounds of national brands. Does any one have an opinion about how much quality I would gain by paying about $7 for five pounds of King Arthur bread flour.

Costco ConAgra Harvest Flour

February 2, 2011 - 11:53am -- Kitchen Barbarian

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".
