How much UNGROUND wheat to make a loaf of bread?

gebowerAugust 25, 2008

I have 250 lbs. of hard red winter wheat and was just curious on this one. I also have the grinder. But, anyway, I'm asking anyone out there that does have the experience, how much unground wheat does it take to make one loaf of bread???? I'm talking measurement as well as weight.

Thanks so much to anyone!!

These are some general numbers. You get a little more extraction with hard white wheat, compared to hard red wheat.

-45 pounds = 158 cups of ground flour

-1 pound (or approx. 3 cups) = approx. 4 cups flour

-a rough approximation - a scant 2/3 c. wheat berries = 1 cup flour

-60-pounds = 90 one-pound loaves (fits in a 7-1/2x3-1/2-inch loaf pan)
