Sam's Club Unbleached APF for the holidays

I was at Sam's the other day and saw (in Dallas, TX) that they are now carrying Unbleached All-Purpose Flour that is listed as a "Seasonal" item.  It was 20lbs for about $6.50.  The packaging also says it contains no Bromate.

You may want to check it out if you're near one :)

My hesitation is because I bought a store-brand AP(unbleached,unbromated) for white bread use and it was awful! I never figured out why-even the addition of VWG didn't help but you could tell when I used that flour.The loaves never turned out properly.

 Thankfully it was only 5# and it was fine for other baking. I suspect it was heavily weighted towards the soft characteristics when blended.

My local sams just started selling KA all purpose can't remember the price, but it was much better than the grocery store

Picked some of the Sams Unbleached All-Purpose Flour. I haven't had a chance to bake with it, but will update this thread when I do.

I bought a 25# bag from Sam's and have been using it for pizza dough and bread, and it's been fine.  Made 6 loaves of hearth bread on Sunday after a 2 day ferment and it turned out wonderful.

I think I may have seen some of that at Sams yesterday but I stayed away -- mostly because I don't need any flour currently.. On a slightly different note, some of the Target stores in my area (Los Angeles) started selling KA Flour recently at pretty reasonable prices -- cheaper than the big box stores such as Von's,etc.. I don't recall the pricing off the top of my head though..  At least the one store I visit carries it.. I've not checked some of the other local stores.. YMMV!
