I got a call this morning from Koerner and verified the order. I'm going tomorrow to pick up the flour! I hope to go pretty early in the morning so I don't spend the whole day driving around. If you'd like a delivery, just email me your address and I can bring it by.

The bread has been BOUGHT from Koerner foods. I've sent an email to everyone who's been in touch with me about the flour — it has more information including pricing and how to pay me back. If you weren't able to participate this time around, email me any way and maybe I can do another one soon!

Thanks — and stay safe yall :)

Sorry I've been AWOL for a while. I was waiting on the restaurateur to get back to me about his supplier, and after like, a week and a half he told me that (a) his supplier could only get him bleached flour, mostly AP, and (b) he was having a hard time pinning them down on prices.

So I'm going to go with Koerner Co in New Orleans. You can see the flours they have available on their flours page (funnily enough!), especially in the Southwest Flour and Spring Flour pages.

A note on flours

Koerner has some King Arthur flour, namely Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot. Sir Lancelot is the same as their normal All-Purpose flour in the red bag you can get from a supermarket, and Sir Galahad is high protein. HOWEVER Galahad is higher in protein than their bread flour; King Arthur's website actually says that Galahad is better for bagels and pizza dough.

The only kind of regular bread flour (~12% protein content) Koerner has is their own brand, called Big Chief. That's what I'm personally going to be ordering, but I think they can do whatever. I assume they can.

Ordering

I want to put an order in for flour this week, so that I can drive down to New Orleans by Monday, May 11, 2020. I'm planning on renting a pickup truck for the day so I can load them in the bed. That also means I might be able to deliver the flour directly to your house, which is great for both of us.

So, to order some flour:

  1. Send me an email at breadbuy at me dot acdw dot net with the products and amounts of flours you'd like me to order from Koerner. Please be as specific as possible. If you don't want to look at their website, I've listed some products below.
  2. Check in periodically on this webpage for updates regarding the flour buy. I'm sorry it took me so long to do this; I don't know why it didn't occur to me until now.
  3. Stay safe in quarantine! If you'd like to help or think of anything I'm missing, don't hesitate to email me at the above address.

The other thing to think about is the truck rental. I'm going to look into that today/tomorrow and pass what that costs on to yall, but it shouldn't be more than, like, a person.
