For starters ... what does "IDY" stand for in this recipe (quoted below)?
This is my first time back to this forum in about 4 years ... different email address ... couldn't remember my last one used.
In any case this thread is why I am back.
I now live in the Winston-Salem, NC area and I am once again looking for the best High Gluten flour to use for pizza.
I was able to get some High Gluten flour from SAM's club until I moved to Winston-Salem but
the SAM's Club area here do not carry the High Gluten flour.
Which is why this thread got my attention.
I see that this Sir Lancelot is the flour I need to try based on this thread. Finding it puts me in the same
position as many on this thread; however, I have found a source.
I have ordered two 50 lb bags (Dutch Valley Food Distributors Inc. ordering #142053)
At $28.06 / bag (plus tax I think). They will come in 09/09th or 10th /2009 and I will pick them up 09/12/2009.
I say this to inform anybody in the Winston-Salem, NC area who may want to buy one of the two bags I get.
I will sell it for the actual price I pay. I do have to drive 80 miles (one way) to get it Ö BUT it will be a nice drive.
For those who want to put in their own order and pick it up themselves, here are the sources I came up with in the last couple of days.

Well, I must say that I have made a lot of pizza in the last few months with alot of different flour. On Monday my KASL arrived VIA UPS from Dutch Valley. I Used the followed this formulation for a 15 inch NY Style:
2 1/2 cups KASL
1 Cup Water
1/2 t IDY
1 T sugar
1 t SALT
1 T virgin Olive Oil
Fridge 24 hours
baked on a screen (15inch) at 450 degree oven
The hardest part was getting the flour in on Monday and waiting until Tuesday to eat the BEST PIZZA ever.......If you have not tried KASL, IT IS WORTH IT.......
