Need Advice on Flour for Bagels
I've read several bagel recipes. Most call for high gluten flour. I'm almost out of Sir Lancelot, and I hate to order from KAF except when they have a free shipping deal. I could just use KAF Bread Flour, or I could mix in some First Clear flour to up the protein level. Seems like I saw a bagel recipe that called for a combination of flours that included First Clear, but now I can't find it.
So the question is: Should I hold off baking bagels until I get some Sir Lancelot, or should I just use Bread Flour, or should I mix in some First Clear? All opinions welcome, especially opinions based on experience. Thanks.
