    Iza, I use unbleached all-purpose (Five-Roses); it works for me.

    About the bagels, I was asking because I can't find high-gluten flour for bagels. Was wondering if you had a source...

    ----------

    Some days, I wish I was living in Alaska! phew...

    ---------

    KyleW: These two recipes from Craig Kominiak (the white and the wholewheat loaves) are among my very favorites, right after Steve Sullivan's. (I put up a picture of his Couronne on page 2 of the previous thread). I also use them to make dinner rolls in financier pans (two balls dough per pan (about 1 1/2 oz. each). Yummy.

    TBH is right and I think you will find the 240 rule in La Brea.

    :p

    Kimmie,

    I think the highest gluten flour available is bread flour. If it's not what you want, go to a bagel shop and ask what type of flour they use and where you could get some. They might even be willing to sell you some. Or try calling one of the flour company they'll tell you if they make it and who they sell it to.

    Dear Iza,

    I might just do that. Not that I haven't thought about it but it might work, just like getting fresh yeast from the baker, right?

    Thanks.

    :rolleyes:

    King Arthur's Bread Flour is 12.7% protien and they have a high gluten (Sir Lancelot) which is 14.2 %.

    I know King Arthur doesn't ship to Canada so this info is for reference purposes :)

    Kyle- you're right. You have to add in the friction factor, but I don't know if I worry about that with a tabletop mixer. But with a bigger one it's something like a degree per minute of mixing.

    Kimmie,

    King Arthur does ship to Canada. I called them once to inquire about a few things was told there woud be no problem with shipping. I didn't ask about flour though.


    If they don't ship their flour to Canada, the border is not that far, a quick trip to the other side for a bag of flour wouldn't take more then an afternoon. I've been seriously considering going doing that myself.

    Iza,

    I just sent them an e-mail. I went on their website not so long ago and read that they did not take international orders at that time.

    Thank you so much. My hopes are up.

    :D

    I must say, Sisi, you made my day!!! ;)

    KyleW,

    Ernest does look like a healthy milk shake...finally! And the foul smell will lessen with time. Keep it up, bread will be there soon.

    BTW, the rustic bread at p. 109 is very good, if you like olives.

    Been to Bouley yet?

    :rolleyes:

    oooooooo KyleW,

    At 7 days, Ernest's mood is very bubbly. Seven more days to go and Ernest will be transformed into a lovely Rustic loaf, with herbs and olives!

    That's so cool!

    :p
