Tony,

You might want to check out Reply #7 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,2049.0.html. One of our members, PizzaManPizzaDan recently got a 50-lb. bag of KASL from Solovy and Goldberg.

I have a question,
What is the difference between King Author Sir Lancelot
and King Author Bread Flour ?
Like this
http://shop.bakerscatalogue.com/items/King_Arthur_Unbleached_Bread_Flour___5_lb_.html

If there is a difference? If so why on earth doesn't King Arthur Flour products sell Sir Lancelot in 5lb bags?
I mean look at all the products they sell but I didn't see a Sir Lancelot on the bag so is it different?
http://shop.bakerscatalogue.com/items/Flours_and_Grains.html

Sorry for asking a dumb question, but is there a difference between the King Author flours?
King Author Bread flour says:
an unbleached, unbromated, high-gluten flour perfect for yeasted baked goods-bread, yeast rolls, pizza, and more. Protein: 12.7%

Just answered my own question.
http://www.kingarthurflour.com/stuff/contentmgr/files/85e624febf29e4c7836066cc68c71648/miscdocs/PremiumFloursonly.pdf

But next question why does King Arthur Flour not sell it's Sir Lancelot to the General public?
Makes no sense, to not package it up in 5lb bags and sell it at retail prices.
I may have to write them.

Perk,

See this thread, http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,2429.0.html, and Reply #16. The short answer is that there is not sufficient demand for high-gluten flour at the retail store level.

You can get it in 3# bags from the Baker's Catalog.  Not too expensive ($2.50 per) and not too bad to ship (cost me $9 to ship to NJ with 3, 3# bags, 1# of yeast, and a pile of other stuff).

To update this thread, Goldberg and Solovy, in L.A. still carry 50# bags of KASL.
Current price as of 2/7/2011 is $22.95/bag, however they require a $100 minimum purchase.
