"White" Whole Wheat Pie
« on: March 24, 2012, 12:02:08 AM »
I thought this stuff would be white!  A hard white spring wheat flour from a mill named WheatMontana.  About 13.8% protein. The flour smelled almost like green grass.  A first for me.  I didn't like the dough to much after I baked it up.  It was a bit on the strong tasting side.  Might be good blended with another flour.

I'm not a whole wheat fan either, I've tried, but it always tastes bitter to me.

I usually get winter white, and don't notice any bitterness. I just bought a bag of spring white, but I have ground any yet so don't know about the taste - hopefully it is okay - I have 25 pounds of it.  For bread, they sometimes suggest a little orange juice to cut the bitterness, don't know if that would work with pizza dough.

This is the exact same flour I used for the Buratto flour clone over on the Pizzarium thread. When mixed with AP, 75% AP to 25% WWW, it preformed well and was uncanny to the Buratto flour. Albeit, I was not a fan of this flour or the Buratto in pizza. Just too wheaty for me.
