                                          • Set aside 2 cups (about 9 oz) flour for step 5. DO NOT PACK FLOUR.
                                          • Pour 1 qt 1 cup (about 1 lb 6 oz) flour, dry milk, baking powder, and salt in a commercial mixer (batch as needed). Using a paddle attachment, mix on low speed for 1 minute.
                                          • Add sour cream to flour mixture. Mix for 2 minutes at low speed. Mixture will be crumbly.
                                          • Add water and mix for approximately 1 minute on low speed to form soft dough. Scrape bowl as necessary during mixing.
                                          • Sprinkle remaining 2 cups (about 9 oz) flour onto countertop. Place dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead ball of dough gently for 1 minute.
                                          • Recommendation: Prepare in batches of 25.
                                          • Roll out about 3 lb 8 oz dough to ½" thickness. Cut with floured 2½" biscuit cutter.
                                          • Transfer to a sheet pan (18" x 26" x 1") lightly coated with pan-release spray.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                            For 100 servings, use 4 pans.
                                          • Bake in a preheated oven until lightly browned:
                                            Conventional oven: 400 °F for 12–14 minutes.
                                            Convection oven: 375 °F for 8–10 minutes.
                                          • Serve 1 biscuit.
