    Excellent product

    Great strong flour for sourdough oven spring

    Great for feeding sourdough starter

    My sourdough starter loves this flour, it is quickly bubbling away shortly after being fed Rouge de Bordeaux. This flour also gets the bread dough bubbling quickly when I use it as the flour added to the starter.

    Good service and good flours

    Have ordered few different types of flour and testing the Spelt which is a fantastic flour. Love the taste. I do recommend the Barton springs mill.

    Not a success for me.

    I tried it in the (King Arthur’s) white whole wheat recipe I’ve made regularly for 2-3 years. It was LESS thirsty, water separated from the dough at the bottom of the mixing pan, and it came out with raw areas in the middle. The flavor was good but I don’t like it enough to take the time and effort to experiment to get a better result.


    Excellent company, quality products. Found their flour because I want to make a great quality sourdough starter. And they have not disappointed! Quick shipping. Check out their *how to* videos-- the ones from covid on baking sourdough are hilarious (and helpful!) 11/10* *chefs kiss*
