I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

  • MY WEIGH KD-8000 Digital Baker's Scale

    Anyone using this scale? The baker's percentage feature looks really useful.

    Haven't found it available locall here, but I can get it via eBay.

    Heliman,
    I use the 5kg scale in 1 gram increments which has proved more than satisfactory for all the pizza and baking that I have done, A 4-5kg batch of dough is a lot of pizzas and my mixer can handle up to 10kg.
    These scales are quite cheap $20-40 in most stores and discount places with all the functions needed, eg tare for when adding the 5g salt, 3g yeast, 5g sugar etc.

      Re: MY WEIGH KD-8000 Digital Baker's Scale

      I have got two digital scales but I have found that they only measure in whole grams, not say .6 grams which I need for scaling.

      I am looking at getting one of the KD-8000s as, apart from the baker's percentage function it also does well for all the other features like tare and part grams. It seems to be a robust product too so should last for a few years.

      The "scaling" feature is pretty good for working backwards from the amount of dough required (I go with 227 gram balls), though I found a good calculator right here on FB that most of the hard work and allows you to use a standard digital scale to make the dough.

      What is unclear with the calculator though is why it varies quite considerbaly in water/flour ratio when you change a simple element like instant yeast to fresh yeast. The learning continues....

        Rossco,
        I find that measuring to within 1 gram is quite adequate, especially when mixing a kilogram dough mix, double, or even quad mixes. Trying to get a decimal part of a gram is too fiddly and I find it irrelevant in mixes over 1000 grams.
