Stone Ground Flour 12.3% Protein- Ideas or recipes?

March 1, 2010 - 1:07pm -- Earlybirdsf

I just discovered a local farmer, selling stone ground, hard red winter wheat, with 12.3% protein. I am looking for some good recipes, that I could use with this flour. I am not as accomplished as most of the amazing contributers to this site. Not yet, anyway.  I have already made a few loafs, using a 50/50 mix of stone ground flour, with AP, and used the "no knead" method, in last weeks NYTimes. It came out good, but I want better. I like both rounds, and loafs.

Thank you for the help.

Anyone have a home stone mill?

January 11, 2010 - 8:25am -- DownStateBaker

Just thinking of treating myself to something nice, so I decided on a mill for my home. Whole flours are definetly the best as fresh as possible and I do a bit of home brewing where I would also like to use fresh milled grains. I would really like a stone mill and I see there are some available online. I would probably get a manual one as the machine ones are a bit out of my price range. So any information on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
