What type of flour for Baguette?

I would like to make an adequate baguette at home, but am a bit flummoxed by what type of flour to buy. Halbweiss? 550? I am tired of driving to St Louis to get my boulangerie fix.

Also, if any experienced bakers have any other tips to offer re: making a good baguette, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you!

At Laughing Lemonís breadmaking course, they just used plain Weissmehl for baguettes and they came out fine.

Re: What type of flour for Baguette?

That's what I was thinking too, but many of the recipes call for Bread Flour. I will forge ahead with weissmehl. Thanks!
