Anybody know of a place i can get bulk wheatberries and/or hard white wheat and/or good bread flour in the Thurston County, WA/ Olympia area? Looking to get bulk baking ingredients locally in the Thurston County, WA area
I just got some fresh wheat berries and I want to grind them into flour. I tried using my beer grinders but they didn't work at all so I had to use my coffee grinder.
Please take a look at my blog site! http://breadnbeer.wordpress.com/
I just made some fresh wheat bread, it's awesome! But the coffee grinder takes forever..
I'm a sucker for heritage or heirloom wheats. I wanted to get 25 lbs of soft wheat berries and had started an order for them at Azure Standard ($10.50, organic) but then I remembered there's a farm nearby named Full Belly that I know sells Sonora wheat flour at farmer's markets in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I'd like to get back to making my own bread.However I require that the wheat be true organic due to allergies to chemicals .I had been using Wheat Montana until they changed some years back.As far as I could determine they added a mold inhibiter.Other sources may use pesticides in storage or shipping.It's also tough to have to buy large amounts to test it. Many of the chemicals will penetrate packaging .A plastic bag is no deterent to these chemicals. I've got many years experience baking and have a mill , all I need is pure wheat. Do any of you have the problem and can help me ?
I would like to add some wheat berries to my next multi-grain bake. What is the minimum soak time to keep from being too crunchy?
For those of you who grind your own wheat, what type of wheat berries do you prefer? Winter or spring wheat? Red or white? Do you prefer different types of wheat for diferent types of bread?
I just purchased a Nutrimill grain mill and bought 25 lbs of organic red winter wheat from Utah from my local health food store. Also purchased 25 lbs of organic Canadian rye. I haven't used the wheat yet, but the rye has been wonderful. Would be interested in your experiences. Thanks! Liz
