Call Dawn and see if they'll do 'Cash & Carry.' Some Dawns will sell to the public, some won't. Get the name of the person you're talking to.
Dawn is ideal, because they have the widest variety of flours. The flour you're looking for here is Spring King.Option 2
Sam's Club Baker's & Chef's HI GLUTEN FLOURhttp://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=10630.0
This is bleached and bromated, and should be in the right range of protein, but not all Sam's Clubs carry it. Call before you go. If your local Sam's doesn't carry it, see if they can special order it for you.Option 3http://www.restaurantdepot.com/locations

Call and see if you can get a one day pass or find someone with a business and use their tax id.
The downside to RD is that they probably won't carry a 13%ish protein flour and you'll have to go with a 14% flour like All Trumps and blend it with all purpose. This will still be better than anything you can get in the supermarket, it just won't be as good as Spring King.Option 4
Befriend a local bakery. Call around and see if a bakery will sell you flour. You should be looking for any of these brands
Here are the brands to look for:
Pillsbury xxxx patent flour
King Midas Special
Perfect Diamond (I think this is 12.5%ish, but not sure)
If you have to take a 14% flour (and blend it)
as I said, 14% is not the end of the world, as long as it's bromated.
Edit: I found two more flour wholesalers to call and see if they'll sell to the public
Sutherland's Foodservice , Forest Park, GA, 404-366-8550
Sysco Atlanta, College Park, GA, 800-366-4454
Btw, if you can score a tax id for RD, see if you can use if for Dawn instead. Dawn is better than RD.
