How do I order King Arthur's Bread Flour in bulk?
« on: June 17, 2017, 07:32:17 PM »
It's not overly expensive by any means (~$4 for 5 lbs), but since I make pizza a lot, it would probably be smart. 

Walmart sells a bundle of 8 of them online, but it costs even more than buying them separately.

It would be nice if I could order 100 lbs of it for $60 or something.

Your looking for king arthur special flour then.   Same flour in a 50lb sack.  Many wholesalers stock it, good luck.  Around New England that costs about $17

I presume that I could probably buy those somewhere if I was willing to drive for an hour.  And it might be worth it.  Except if the bag rips, it would be hell.

I carried many 50 lbs bags when I used to work at Home Depot, and I've always been paranoid of rippage.

I've been around bagged flour for well over 50-years, and even when flour came in 100-pound bags, I can't remember ever having a bag rip apart on me. Now that it's only offered in 50-pound bags there is even less chance of a bag ripping. Thank OSHA for the 50-pound bags.
If you're talking about bags of cement coming apart, you have a lot to be concerned over, I've had numerous bags rip apart on me, just look at the area where they're stored, torn/ripped bags, and cement dust all over the floor where they're stored. I've been known to buy a partial (torn) bag of cement from time to time and just place it into a plastic trash bag to keep it all together until I get home to use it.
