Bulk Flour Group Buy

We bake nearly all our own bread.  Through experimentation, we have found King Arthur to be our favorite brand of flour.  Unfortunately, we have yet to find any local flour that can match the quality and consistency of  King Arthur products.  Fortunately they are a co-operative business with values I can respect even if the wheat is not locally sourced. Last spring I organized a group buy of bulk (50 pound bags) King Arthur flours.  I am pleased to expand the offer to Columbus Ohio blog readers this time around.

Here's how the order will work:

1) Reply in the comments section or by email with your order by Tuesday, January 12 at 8 pm. 2) I will email payment instructions on Tuesday evening. 3) Payments are due by Sunday the 17th. 4) Delivery will be Wednesday the 20th or Thursday the 21st to Sprout Soup. 5) Rapid pickup is necessary.  The bags take up a huge amount of space and we want to be respectful of Sprout Soup.  If you order, please make plans to visit Sprout Soup on Thursday evening or Friday morning to pickup.

Prices and descriptions are below:

FLOUR SPECIAL MALTED ENRICHED 50# $18.49 FLOUR WHEAT WHOLE WHITE 50# $22.41 HARVEST FLOUR SIR GALAHAD 50# $15.79 HARVEST FLOUR SIR LANCELOT 50# $22.99

Special Malted Enriched is a medium protein general purpose wheat flour. Wheat whole white is 100% whole wheat ground as white and substituted up to 100% in most recipes.  I use this for everything except pie crust, roux, and 50% bread flour in sandwich bread. Sir Galahad is an enriched flour from hard red winter wheat. Sir Lancelot is enriched hi-gluten bread flour.  Necessary for high quality bread.

Here's a link to the specific properties of each flour: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/professional/documents/BFS-Specs-Customer-Copy.pdf

Please ask any questions you have.   I'll post about bulk flour storage before the order gets here if you need some ideas about what the heck to do with 50 pounds of flour!
