    I’ve been using this for sourdough and bread-machine loaves over the past few months. It ferments quite quickly – even with sourdough which is really handy. Combines well with other flours and ancillary ingredients. Delicious flavour and great crust. Decent value too.

    I previously used Marriages Very Strong flour for baking sourdough. It was brilliant but I prefer uppermost as it’s slightly more versatile. It’s worked great for making sourdough, pizza, naan and soda. And thank you Kells for not overpricing your flour during the pandemic, unlike many less scrupulous vendors.

      Hi Declan, Thanks for your guidance, it is helpful for other bakers who may be considering trying sourdough for the first time. We would recommend Marriages Uppermost for sour dough, also Marriages Golden Crust is an excellent general purpose strong bread flour. Happy baking from all in the Kells team.

    I ordered this flour during the lockdown.It was delivered the next day, which I appreciate. It is a beautiful flour . I use it for sourdough, often mixed with Malted grain flour from Kells. Congratulations on your informative website too.

    I’ve been using Marriages uppermost for the last 4 months and it’s a wonderful flour. Very easy to work with and makes a beautiful sourdough loaf or sourdough baguettes. Also works really well in pizza dough. As for the website and the products you offer – really top notch. You’ve been a godsend during the lockdown!

    We ordered from Kells during lockdown. They were great in tracking our order and making sure our flour arrived. The flavour from the flour was amazing – no going back to supermarket flour now!

    • Shop Manager

      Thank you for your comments Sarah.

    I’ve gone through 2 bags of this over the last 6 months. Really good flour for sourdough and for pizza. Great customer service from Kells also. I’d be lost without them.

    • Shop Manager

      Hi Mark, Thanks for the comment, and we are glad that the flour is working so well for you. Happy baking, from all at the Kells Team.

    I second the comments above. I got into baking bread during the pandemic when flour could not be sourced anywhere locally. I found Kells to be top class and very good value. This flour blend is top notch too. Have been baking great sourdough with it.

    • Shop Manager

      Hi Eoin, Thanks for the comment, I will share with the rest of the team at Kells.

  11. Colm

    Super flour. I use it for sourdough pizza bases and various shaped loaves. Dough is silky smooth and fantastic to work with. Service from Kells always great too. Thank you.

    • Shop Manager

      Thanks for the comment Colm, helpful for other home bakers to have an independent assessment. Happy baking! From all at Kells.

  12. Veronica (verified owner)

    I am another baker who found you during the great flour shortage of 2020. I found this to be a very versatile flour. It’s perfect for sourdough, the bread and pizza I’ve been making have been delicious. But I’ve also had great success with the pasta, pastry and buns I’ve made from it too. Which is why I’m back for more – thanks Kells!

    • Shop Manager
