Flour Blender

I decided to boost the ash content of my bread flour by adding a little WW flour. The calculator below calculates the ash content of the blend.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1D9aWmLONXNg84M9NVcHqVMsxE41E-hiupj_jnPUlPRs/edit#gid=1191504533

Enter the ash content of your flours in column D. Enter the proportion of each flour in your blend n column C.

NOTE: Cell C6 must equal 100%.

Please report any bugs.

I did have a problem with those little beetles a few years ago... ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, there's barely anything a bread baker can possibly do, that someone hasn't already documented and made a handy calculator to go with it. I'm not completely sure what I would use my final ash % for - I mean what I would gain from knowing it - but I guess if I got to a certain % and discovered that it was very close to a product available off the shelf, it could save some time.

Plus I guess bread calculators are for people who just want to know. Just to know. Everything. ๐Ÿ˜
