Central Milling Organic Unbleached Flour.

Richmond Costco had none yesterday and could not find it in the computer. If it was good enough for Acme it's good enough for me. Where can I find it in less than 50# bags for about 55 cents/lb?

  1. Oh, that's too bad. They seem to be cutting back on some of their more eco-conscious products (no more "natural" tp or paper towels, either).

    1. Central Milling is owned by Keith Giusto. He has a bakery supply in Petaluma and will sell to home bakers if they come to the place. It's better if you call first to see what they have packed in smaller bags (that's if you want smaller than 50# bags.) By the way, they mill many flours, not just the one they sell at Costco -- see the following for more info re their flours and sales policies:

        Will check. Thank you. Maybe 50# isn't a bad idea considering my last visit to Costco before they stopped carrying was 40#.

          I'd gladly split some 50 pounders with you.

      2. aaaargh the computer was wrong or the young man entered the wrong name but whatever there was a big pile of Central Millings flour at Richmond today. Should it ever really disappear it's off to Petaluma.

        1. Good news fellow bakers! The costcos in sf bay area (I bought mine in richmond) started carrying a new central milling AP-style flour. It's called "Artisan Bakers Craft" with 11.5% protein (compared to their 10.5% of the previous "Beehive" brand). I think my 25lb bag was around $13. STEAL! Also, they started carrying a wholewheat pancake/waffle mix in a 5lb bag for 8$. But it's a bit too sweet for my liking.

            Got a 25 pound bag today at the Richmond Costco for $13.59. I called the San Leandro Costco first, since they are closer to me, but they don't carry it.
