Wondermill Junior Flour Fineness?

April 15, 2013 - 10:27am -- DarkNova

I'm looking at buying a hand mill and am seriously investigating the Wondermill Junior. I am wondering, for those of you who own this mill, are you satisfied with the fineness of the flour that it produces? I would like a mill that can produce as fine of flour as typical storebought whole wheat flour. Thanks.

Need advice on bread recipes aand ratio of ingredients

April 1, 2013 - 7:12pm -- danielsuh25

So I've done some research online trying to find a good ratio for flour, water/milk, yeast, and sugar. Basically what I found was that the flour:water/milk and sugar:yeast ratio should be 3:1. So I'm theorizing, after looking at many recipes online, that a good recipe for 1 9x5 inch loaf bread should be about 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of water/milk, 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast, and 6 3/4 teaspoons of sugar. I'm also wondering how much salt and oil would be good for this recipe? Any suggestions and words of advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

I've been making bread for about two weeks and am doing pretty well with the basics.  What I'd like now is a way of flavouring the actual dough.  It's easy enough to add things like seeds or dates and walnuts, but I feel that there should be more flexibility by treating the flour, or the sponge perhaps, to give a nice background taste.

Any advice gratefully received.

January 29, 2013 - 1:26pm -- claudiarana

Hello everybody,

Im from Mexico, and I just tried King Arthur flour WW and its amazing!

Now I can see what´s the deal about unbleached flour , problem is, that i can´t find any unbleached flour here yet.

Does anyone knows a brand of unbleached flour here? Its really expensive to import good flour from USA

Hello from Denver. Any other denver home bakers here on the forum? I'm curious if anyone has a good flour source in the area. There is a new micr0-grocer, The Clever Turnip, based out of Black Eye Coffee Shop (new shop in the highlands.) They currently have a couple products from Heartland Mills (barley, malted AP) so I asked them if they could bring in the strong bread flour. If they do I'll post here so you can get it also and support this shop.
