Wheat and Rye's - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Wheat and Rye's

    Finally caught up on our bread supply....

    We butter the crust for a softer crust and a flavor boost. (I still need a sprayer for the oven)

    The wheat was great and the rye will be tasted today! (It's a very dense rye recipe from Vaughn's mother, who made it too)

    The breads look mighty good. What are you using to slash the dough? You might find you'll get more of an opening, or grigne, if you use a razor blade, go a bit deeper and on more of an angle.

        Thanks CJ, we used the razor we picked up the E Dilliherin chef's store. I'm sure there is a fancy french name for it.

        It was my virgin try so the deeper and sideways advice is much appreciated.

          It's called a lame. There are about a zillion kinds of these, some serrated. There is a French company that makes nothing but. How French is that? I was given one by a German friend that's made by, you guessed it, the Swiss Army knife guys (see the FB bread cookbook for a pic). And, no, it doesn't have pliers or a bottle opener or..., but the blade is serrated and very stiff. I use it for straight down cuts on firm dough. For really hydrated doughs, I leave all these things in the drawer and use kitchen shears instead. Works good at a very shallow angle.

          Somewhere, there's a post of mine on lames and a link to a site that offers a really cheap blade holder meant for double-edged razor blades you can buy in bulk. Believe it or not, the blades do dull over time.

          You want an entry angle of about 30 degrees or so, and a depth of about half an inch on a large loaf. It's decorative, sure, but it also contributes to oven spring. I would probably kill for a lame from that store.

            Hey guys,

            I bought a pair of (Xacto?) Xcelite blade holders and surgical blades for $A17 the other day for my growing collection of 'sharps' - they slice into my wheatgrain/rye/wholemeal loaves quite nicely, thank you :-)

            Just a thought for those of you can't get to the right 'lames'...
