Hopefully this will encourage you to have a go as well (and to learn from the few mistakes I made by either trying to cut corners or not reading the instructions).

Many a baked good has been unsuccessful at the hand of an over or under packed cup of flour, sugar or the like. Rather than have a deep seam down the middle of my loaf, mine looks more like I made a cut along the top of the loaf pre-bake. The more accurate way would be to use a large (12 quart) container with volume markers along the side to easily measure progress.However having said that, I never baked at the 6300 ft, so I’m not an expert on high altitude baking. Weights and measurements: For the biga 500 grams of white flour, 340 grams of 80 degree water and 0. When it is ready, the dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with a finger. It is no coincidence that the place where the five elements that compose the magical alchemy of pizza combine the best is Naples, Italy”.

The baking process smelled great – but not as aromatic as last week; perhaps that was then due to the whole wheat mix in the flour? NB – I ended up baking both loaves and they turned out pretty well and tasted terrific despite having to scrap the contents into the cast iron pan.

These days, I make only the amount of levain I need and I use the whole thing and in the background, feed my small starter daily to keep it alive. The loaves spread out and looked like Jabba the Hut 🙁 They were PBFs (partial bread failures) but they still tasted delicious. For the final dough: an additional 500 grams of white flour; 250 grams of water at 105 degrees; 21 grams of sea salt; 3 grams of instant dry yeast and the 1000 grams of poolish from the night before.

How deep should I make my slashes on top and should they cover the whole top area or just the middle…does it matter? I take the fist loaf out while the oven heats up (so about 20 minutes) and take the second one out after the first one has bakes (also about 20 minutes). Prompted by the first hard frosts of the year and the end of the beekeeping season, here’s a post that is of only peripheral relevance to beekeeping.The main difference between active dry yeast and instant yeast, is that active dry yeast must be dissolved or “activated” in water before it is then incorporated into the dry ingredients used to make bread. In a nutshell, keep your starter in the fridge and leave it completely alone until you want to make bread.
