Has anyone used Blue Bird Flour (bleached) from the Cortez Milling Company to bake bread? What is the protein content? Thanks!

According to the responses on this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com..., the protein content is 8%, so it probably isn't ideal to use it in place of bread flour.

With a protein content of 8%, it's right in between pastry flour (9%) and cake flour (7%). It sounds like it would make some lovely cookies, with perhaps 25% AP flour sifted in.
