Bread Flour in Perth

[email protected]..

I have recently moved from the UK to Fremantle, south of Perth, Western Australia and would  greatly appreciate some help with where I can buy 'strong' white and wholemeal bread flour (13% protien or above), preferably organic, in reasonable size bags (5kg - 10kg)for making my sourdough bread. I have been using Wallably flour from Woolworths but its not organic and only available as white flour. I have found an excellent sourdough bakery but they only sell small bags of wholemeal baking flour (10% proetien). I would also appreciate advice on the different types of rye flour available. I have been used to using light rye and wholemeal rye flour. So far I have found rye flour and dark rye flour but they both look the same colour to me. I am new to this forum but have found it to be so interesting and helpful. Many thanks.

Hello Grace,

Welcome to the forum and Australia.

One brand that I use is by Four Leaf Milling and it is often available in health food shops.  They have sizes up to 20kg but I have not seen shops that routinely stock that large a size but maybe on special order.  Two outlets listed in South Fremantle are Manna Wholefoods at 274 South Terrace and Peaches Fresh Food Market in Hampton Road.

Another brand that has a good reputation that I know of is Demeter Farm Mill and if you ask around at similar or baking supply shops you should be able to track it down.  I am sure there will be other brands if you just ask.

Good luck with your projects.

Thanks Derek,
You have been really helpful and I appreciate your response. I have found Kakulas sisters, its a brilliant shop.  I am now much better at finding things generally than when I first arrived although it has taken me a while.  I think I am now making better bread than I did in the UK.
Best wishes,
Grace
