As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

    Re: Sourdough article.

    Hi Al!

    Interesting article! Highlights the "definitional" issues related to bread, in general and sourdough in particular. The comments on the Vitamin C/ascorbic acid is particularly interesting to me!

    if you have never tried it, I strongly urge you (and everyone who makes bread) to mix your normal bread dough and hold he salt and about 50 ml of water. After mixing, the dough will be a bit softer than normal. Let it autolyze about 20 minutes (note it doesn't have to be as mixed as normal - just to uniform wetness). Then add the salt and extra water and work that in with your hands. You will feel the gluten tighten ans the salt enters the bread. Really interesting tactile transition!

    Bake on!
