Yeast Question - 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.

  • Yeast Question

    In the pizza recipe ebook it says to mix water and flour together and let it autolyse for 20 minutes. It also says do not add the active dry yeast until after the autolyse. I thought active dry yeast had to be activated in warm water before adding to dry ingrediants. What am I missing?

    Use instant dry yeast. It works fine without being activated in water. Active dry yeast has about 1/3 the active yeast cells and will work but is a lot slower.

      If it is going in the fridge overnight, I put it in dry, if I am making the dough and using it the same day, I feed it with warm water and sugar for 30 minutes.

          Re: Yeast Question

          I realize that this is an old thread, but in reading the ebook I too had the same question, which I still don't see a satisfactory answer to: if you're mixing the flour and water (all of it, I assume), what do you proof the yeast in? More water? Wouldn't that throw the ratio off?

          Should I reserve some water for proofing the yeast? If so, how much?

            I use one cup of the mix water when I proof it, along with a little sugar. As a rule I just mix it in dry, though.

              When I first started making pizza I was confused as well.

              "Active" Dry yeast like Tscar said has less active yeast cells & think of the word "active" as shorthand for activate or activate in water.

              "Instant" Dry yeast has more yeast cells & does not need to be activated or just throw it right in.
