Re: Spotted some in Coffs Harbour, NSW,
"did not cross my mind much"
The supplies are actually ok, it's just that whenever they roll out a palette a bunch of buggers comes and buys 10 packs apiece. Same with flour (all types... tipo 00, whole grain rye and wheat and whatnot) and yeast (fresh and dried). I guess that 99% of those who buy it have not been baking in the last decade or three, and of those at least 95% won't be using up what they bought. Meanwhile here at Casa Joe we are almost out of yeast, I guess the next bread will be sourdough only...
