    Yecora Rojo Wheat Berries

    Spouting some for my wheat bread made with the same flour.

    Good wheat flavor

    The flavor is darker than white flour and sweet not harsh. Makes a delicious wheat sourdough bread.

    No Going Back!

    My wife bought me a grain mill for Christmas several years ago. I have been baking sourdough since 1978, but never used freshly ground flour before. I discovered your company after reading about it on the Perfect Loaf website. I have now baked 6 loaves, using fresh ground flour in both the starter and the dough. Friends and family declared it the best I have ever done! It has made a difference in taste, texture, crumb and oven spring! I will never go back to straight commercial flour. Great stuff!

    Dense Bread

    I grind flour and Yecora , Einkorn , Spelt, Rye make a nutritious bread but not much rise or gluten . I thought Yecora will take the place of bread flour but not really.
    Maybe I should get soft wheat but also maybe my grind is not fine enough .

    Hi George! Yecora is a very flavorful hard red wheat that is great as a bread flour (soft wheats are better suited to delicite items like muffins and cakes). If you are also adding in Ancient Grains like Spelt or Einkorn, these varieties have a very differnt protein structure than wheat and will likely add density to your loaf. We reccomend replacing no more than 30% of your wheat flour with Ancients for best results. ~Team BSM
