The lower protein KA French-Style flour resulted in a dough which was more extensible and a bit less "bucky" than standard KA AP flour.

Lovely loaves!  Did you notice a difference in taste with the different flour?

It's interesting that you should ask that question.  I did notice a slight difference in flavor, although it's hard for me to put into words.  Perhaps the difference is due to the slightly higher ash content of the French-style flour as compared to the AP flour.
