It is a few weeks since we last updated you from Priors Flour HQ and in that time, lots has been going on!
New Wheat from the 2021 Harvest
We have just transitioned onto a new parcel of high protein milling wheat, a blend of 1/3 of the wheat you will have been used to working with over the last 18 months and 2/3 of 2021 harvest wheat from Woodlands Farm, Lincolnshire.
You may recall from previous posts that the 2021 harvest turned out to be challenging. I test milled and test baked 5 different sample of 2021 harvest wheat. In the end, I decided to create a blend of 2020 harvest and 2021 harvest wheat. The result is a flour which has many similarities with out 2020 harvest flour which has been in production for some 18 months.
You can expect the same great flavour and oven spring, but you will find that the flour takes just a little less water (hydration), so back off the water a little until you get used to the new flour!
