I make a lot of bread.
I believe that in the last 2 years I’ve gone through 3 25 lb bags and 1 50 lb bag of flour. It’s time to start taking better notes. Here we go!
I just added the “Bread” Category to this blog. I have retroactively put all my bready posts into this category.
I just finished a 25 pound bag of First Street Bread Flour from Smart and Final. It was about $12. Standard loaves come out a bit softer and sweeter than with the previous Hotel all-purpose flour (I forget the exact name, it’s from Smart and Final and has the word “hotel” in it). I like it.
I just made some focaccia with it and it was very easy to flatten out. The Hotel flour has a strong tendency to spring back.
