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!

  • Dough storage containers - freezing

    I saw a few older threads mentioning the use of deli containers for freezing. Are folks using these for 200g or so balls??


    Amazon.com: 50 Sets 16oz Plastic Soup / Food Containers with Lids: Kitchen & Dining

    They look like a cheaper option than glad ware or ziplock storage containers....

    Nice. Those should work just fine.

      Re: Dough storage containers - freezing

      I purchased several different but similar canisters for individual dough proofing/storage but most were so tight fitting that they were almost impossible to separate without forcing a skewer or knife between them. Ikea has these available in pack of 4, they stack well, don't stick together, easily washed (and wiped), .5 litre or 17 oz capacity and I find them ideal.

      Cheers.

        I use the same IKEA containers as Neil. They work great, and are super cheap!

          Re: Dough storage containers - freezing

          I just bought a bunch of 16 oz screw-top containers, which I'm fond of. Amazon is selling a 2-pack of 3-packs of the Zip-Lock brand for about $5. Not as cheap as those deli containers, but not bad. The screw-top is nice--keeps the lids from exploding off from the CO2 build-up of the dough.

          And to answer your other question, I put 230g dough balls in them with no problems. When I used to make ~300g dough balls, those would get too large for the 16oz box.

            that is a good price for those. I am doing 225-250g balls so 16oz should be fine.

            I am also thinking of trying to freeze my balls in my dough trays and then dropping the frozen balls into bags.....my dough trays will drop right into my deep freezer...hmm....My plan is to keep 20-30 balls in the freezer at all times and just keep rotating them out.
