Good morning. Can someone please tell me which brand of flour to buy to make home made bread. (Not in a bread maker) Thanks.

Brand doesn't matter. But you need strong four. so not plain or self raising, but high grade.

I've been using Pams high grade for many years.

Brand doesn't matter, your should really look for higher protein (gluten). So far I couldn't find higher protein than Strong Bakers Flour Beta made by Champion. It is milled from hard wheat. Before that I was using high grade flour from supermarkets and I find that Strong flour produces better results. It is sold in 20kg bags in Gilmours. I mainly bake sourdough bread with home milled flour (rye, wheat, barley etc.) and only use Strong flour for bagels and white bread, not much. Every time I am trying to find someone to split the 20kg. But for now I still have some flour left for some time.
