I am going to have Spike ask him where his wife gets the hard to find kosher items. If I can contact her source, perhaps they will know of a source closer to your home area. I am on a mission.
It's called supply and demand. There's not much demand for kosher ingredients in rural areas with a small Jewish population. In our area, large grocery stores have kosher sections, but that doesn't happen in smaller communities.

Charlie, Spike did a search for kosher bread making products and found that Walmart's carries it.

Hodgson Mill Whole Grain Rye Flour - Walmart.com

If your Walmart's doesn't have it in their store, you can order it in line and have it sent to your closest store with free shipping. They seem to have an extensive list of kosher products for bread making.

That makes sense. Thanks.

Charlie - how long had you had the rye flour? I try and buy mine in small quantities - just enough for what I want to bake and don't store it.

Rye flour doesn't keep well and that can affect the rising properties.

EDIT: Oh sorry, just noticed the date on the original post. It was fairly well up the list.

Is there a Kosher bakery, café or restaurant near you? It might be worth asking them if they will either get you some or sell you some of their stock.

Flour is available everywhere, as the matter of fact flour doesn't need to be " kosher" it is kosher by default so to speak, just like fruits and vegetables. I am looking for malted grain.

Interesting, I did not know that. I better start using it faster. I have a whole bag and though I bought it recently I better keep this in mind. How long does it less?

W-e-ll, when I first bought it I was told to use it within a week once I'd opened it and when I buy it it usually has a very short "sell by" date on the packaging. I think it's to do with the oils in the grain. I do, however, think that a week is a bit on the conservative side.

If I have any left when I've baked with it I put it in a Lock and Lock box in the freezer and I find it keeps longer like this. I've used it after a couple of months and it's been OK.

(I've just checked on this and apparently it will keep 6 months to a year, depending on who's written the articles, in the freezer.)

Just curious, if flour is kosher by default, what is it about malted grain that might not be kosher?
