sr lancelot flour vs organic high gluten flour


what is the difference between sir Lancelot flour and organic high gluten flour (other than price). I make a German bread using high gluten, but now I'm not sure which to purchase. Haven't made it in a long time!

Well it sort of depends on who makes the "organic high gluten" flour - we can't tell the protein content or other characteristics without knowing that.
The Sir Lancelot is 14% protein, which is quite high and would make for a chewy bread, and should work just fine for that sort of recipe. (Sir Galahad is the bulk name for the KAF AP flour @11.7% protein, and the KAF Bread flour, @ 12.7%, is packaged in bulk as King Arthur Special Spring Patent Flour)

If you are talking about the King Arthur organic high gluten flour, it looks like the only difference is .2% protein. (Sir Lancelot is 14.2% protein and the organic high gluten is 14%) I've only used the sir lancelot.
