Forum Page Loading Response

Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. 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:


Thank you for understanding.

  • Bread Baking Photos

    I used the poolish method outlined in both The Bread Baker's Apprentice and the Hamelman Bread Book. I made two batches, one 1/2 Tipo 00 (because I had it) and 1/2 King Arthur white whole wheat and one 3/4 King Arthur whole wheat and 1/4 white whole wheat. I started the poolish the night before, so it fermmented slowly for about 16 hours. I added the final flour, salt and yeast (for the white) and molassas, oil and honey for the whole wheat by hand and kneaded on the counter.

    The poolish pre-ferment, where you mix all the water and about half the flour with a pinch of yeast to let it ferment slowly to develop the gluton and give the bread flavor worked very well. I've been lazy and skipping that step, but it really adds so much.

    I am building a bread section on the Forno Bravo web site, and will post when that is ready.

    Here are the pre-ferment and shaping photos.
