I am glad that you haven't had any problems with flour going rancid. A friend of ours bought a bunch of flour at a really good price, wrapped the bags of flour in plastic wrap and put them in the pantry. over 3/4 of it went bad before they used it.
It's never a great deal if you end up throwing it away.
I got a really good deal on some flour a few years ago. it was like 20 bags for 50c each or something. those bags would fit in Mylar bags, so I put them all in Mylar bags and kept them in the deep freezer. we used the last of it this year. didn't have any issues.
this stuff was in bags that were too large to fit in Mylar bags so it all got oven canned. which is good because the freezer is getting over stuffed and I got 20 meat birds growing out right now that will go in the freezer.
the main thing I like about the oven canning is heating to kill any pests before they hatch. these 12 qts of flour will likely last us all year and I dont have to worry about anything getting to it.
