types of flour brands

hi - has anyone compared bobs red mill flour against king arthur flour?

http://www.bobsredmill.com/unbleached-white-flour.html versus http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/king-arthur-unbleached-all-purpose-flour-5-lb ?

i typically use the bobs red mill flour but noticed that after my no knead bread is baked, it has a funny taste....nothing like store bought bread.  Baked probably twenty loaves and they taste poorly  (basic no knead bread, following instructions to the "T").

 

Cheers

Can you describe the taste? Also, how old is the flour?

 

Have you made the no-knead bread with KA Bread Flour yet?

I use bobs all the time for the oat flour and bran flour to make stuff. Never tried the regular flour. King Arthur, however, is the be all end all for flour (store bought at least). I was never a believer and I always just thought that flour was flour (before I really started baking) but got really deep with it. Buy KA.

I use KA flour (bread and whole wheat) for baking sourdough and no knead with no weird tastes.

Back in the day, my preference was always Heckers, but after moving out of the Northeast (and then, later, moving to Honduras) I could never find it again.

sorry for the late reply.  

 

the flavor tastes:

1. bland

2. burnt flavor maybe?  but the inside is not burnt

3.  the crust tastes funny after cooking in the cast iron pot

4.  fresh smell of bread early in the baking process then goes to a bitter smell
