New Bread Cookbook -- Hamelman - 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.

  • New Bread Cookbook -- Hamelman

    A friend who is an avid baker just sent me Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes by Jeffrey Hamelman. He's says it's his favorite Bread cookbook. Anyone have it?

    I will start reading and post anything interesting.

    Here's another bit of light reading while you're waiting for the first rise: The baguette is back - TLS Highlights - Times Online

    Bread is back? I must have been out when it left.

      I've been using Hamelman's book for about 2 years now. It's not written in the popular style of, say, Reinhart, and it does lean in the pro direction rather heavily. However, for theory and practice, it's absolutely the best out there. Check out his section on the friction factors of various models, for example. Have a look at his discussion of water temps. Then try some of the formulas. Outstanding.

        I am using that too (based on CanuckJim's advice). Lots of theory which I find helpful. The braiding section is also excellent.

          I think the only solution to bad bread is to make your own.

          Jim, I like "friction factors." I didn't really believe in the importance of fiction and fermenation temperature until the past six months. It's really remarkable.

          Alfredo, maybe good bread left for a while... :-)
