Bob's Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour

Anyone using this who can tell me how it performs? It was the only white flour available at my small local grocery in anything more than small bag. They had this in bulk. Any other 'white' flour was the small 24oz bag of Arrowhead Mills or similar at an exorbitant price. I think the bin said unbromated/unbleached? I don't know if this is "bread flour" or "all-purpose flour" in tendency.

I think BRM has great flour. It's a bit expensive, but maybe that's because I live so close to the source..a 1/2 hour or so.

I did read their notes on the website - but a website blurb never says as much (or as honestly!) as an end user.

I don't find it -too- terribly expensive here. I think it was $1.29/pound in bulk.

My daughter, who lives in Portland, buys this flour 25 pounds at a time and is very pleased with its performance.

Reviving this thread because I'd like to know the answer to the original question: should I treat Bob's Red Mill unbleached white flour as an AP flour or a bread flour?

I'm new to this forum, so I am hesitant to chime in,  but I  just bought a five pound bag of this flour. If it's the same as what you bought in bulk, I compute the protein percentage as 11.8% (4 grams of protein in a 34 gram serving.) This would make it similar to Gold Medal bread flour I bought yesterday.

I'm going to try it for biscuits in a couple of days.  I'll report my results.
