The store I went to did not know what type of wheat it was. Even with photos, I've had trouble identifying the wheat as hard or soft. Can you use either one for bread? I know it's supposed to be 'hard' for bread. -k

Hard wheat has a higher protein content than soft wheat and rises better, which is why it is preferred for bread. "All-Purpose" flour is a combination of hard and soft wheats. In order to make all-purpose or soft wheat more suitable for making bread, you can add "Vital Wheat Gluten" to boost the protein content and allow it to rise better.

Ive found that to be true as well - one feed store will carry corn, another wheat, yet another milo. Gotta shop around, but for the price break I don't mind a bit either!
New laws are like new taxes....both evolve, but they never go away.

Didn't know what Vital Wheat Gluten was, so looked it up: -k
