    I just started making my own bread and am surprised at how expensive bread flour is! Where is the best place to buy bread flour at a reasonable price?
    Thanks!

    I make bread occasionally too. In the past I used bread flour but storage for multi types of flour was a problem. So I've been trying recipes that don't require "bread flour". Haven't found a favorite for white bread yet, but have a favorite wheat that I keep making and everyone here likes.

    One important tip I learned here on the dis (you may already know this), but not sure where, is that good flour (like King Arthur) really makes a difference in the texture of the bread. This is so true. So now I buy that for bread. I bought my first one at the market, not on sale :guilty: just to try it. I will buy my next one at Costco. I don't remember how much it was there or the size, just that it was reasonable. Other than that I would just watch the sales and coupons. Sorry not more of a help.
