Re: Bread life expectancy.

When I buy a loaf I put it in the big freezer (double wrapped) if it is not needed right away. Always the same brand and type*. A loaf will give me about a week and a half. Keep it in the aforementioned bread box.

Usually no trouble with mold at all. I have found that sometimes the loaves put up on sale for a deep discount go moldy really fast. They knew they had to dump them ASAP.

I believe that the initial freezing helps quite a bit with staving off mold.
