I usually go through flour pretty quick, but I have some whole wheat and better for bread flour that I have had for awhile. I just don't know how long it lasts. I don't store it in the freezer.
Flour keeps 6-8-months, possibly up to 12-months, at room temperature (70-degrees F.).

Thank you very much!
I just bought some KA flour with a 10/29/12 "best by" date, so I'm guessing a year sounds about right.
Whole wheat has a much shorter shelf life because of the wheat germ. I'd give it a good sniff before using it. It goes rancid.
I'm in FL so I keep it in the freezer (that side of the freezer will have to be emptied because of cooking ahead for the big day). Hope the weather turns a bit cooler.
after trying to find out which long storage food kit may fit my needs, I review four of them there, possibly this can help.
If anyone think about family safety, have food reserve for each of family member is must and freeze dried food with 25 years shelf life IMHO is one of the best choices for long storage.
Of course if anyone know better choices, I think that all of us would like to hear about alternatives.

Hope you survive a food shortage better than you survived English class.
Survivaldude, is English not your first language? What country are you from?

I have garden, generally fruit trees, some flowers and old northern grapes, not much, but enough for our family eat some bunches of tasty self grown grapes at autumn and if year is good, also make ten or a bit more bottles with wine from leftovers. Some topics on wine making bring me there.
Yes, English is not my first language as You note, but I try :)
