I looked up the KA website. I think everything there is REALLY expensive! I go through @ 300 lbs of bread flour per week. A 50# bag of General Mills "All Trumps" bread flour (12% gluten) runs me $8.49, delivered to my door. My bags come with the milling date STAMPED on the bag, in plain English. I am fortunate to live 12 miles from a brand new mill operate by Fisher. I know the plant manager and have learned all about the milling process. I assure you these people are as serious about their product as KA. If I wanted to go pick up my own flour, I can get it MILLED THAT DAY, for @ $4.50 a #50 bag. I am also 100 miles away from Camas Grain, who only mill ORGANIC flour. I find that very fresh flour acts differently than the older stuff. I get my best results from flour that is a week or two old. I guess that is what I am used to...
