Kosher Salt - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • Kosher Salt

    My dough wasn't as puffy this time as it has been the past few times. The only change I made was to use Kosher Salt instead of Table Salt. Is this a reaction I should expect to see -- does the salt make the difference?

    Re: Kosher Salt

    If you weigh the amount of salt you use, it should not make a difference. If you did it by volume, I would expect more action from a dough made with the same kosher salt vs the same volume of table salt...

      Re: Kosher Salt


      A curious problem indeed. One ounce of kosher salt is equal to 7 teaspoons. One ounce of seal salt is equal to 6 teaspoons. I suggest you weigh it. It MIGHT be that you added the salt too early, and it came into direct contact with the yeast. Yeast does not like that, and I always add salt only after all the other ingredients have formed a mass.
