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!

  • Blue bag and Red bag Caputo

    Is there any real difference between blue bag of Caputo and the red bag other than size of bag?

    I have been using the red 2.2 ib bags and never really compared to blue bag. The Caputo website gives them different product names. Does anyone know if theyare the same product?

    The store says they're the same. I used the little red bags and then moved to the big blue bag and don't notice any difference.

      Re: Blue bag and Red bag Caputo

      Hi guys,

      The confusing part is that there are two blue bags. The big 25kg blue bag is Caputo Pizzeria flour -- the flour used by most restaurants without any blending. We sell that on the FB Store.

      The small 1kg red bag that we sell on the FB Store is Pizzeria flour -- the same as the 25kg blue bag.

      The small 1kg blue bag (that we used to sell, but do not sell any more) is a general purpose flour that was formulated to demo Caputo. It was a little lighter than the Pizzeria flour. Putting the real Pizzeria flour in the small red bag for retail sale to consumers (as opposed to restaurants) was a step up. A good thing.

      I hope this helps.
