Making dough , something i just realized - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Making dough , something i just realized

    This may sound odd and funny butt maybe some others may have done also ,while making dough by weight. The 1st time i made dough, i never subtracted the water, i used to proof my yeast from the total water , guess thats why it was wetter then should have been. Another thing i didnt do was subtract the weight of the measuring cup or containers i used to weigh flour ,salt ,water, guess thats why everthing was off. Maybe somewere in posts it has been metioned, butt i never seen it. Sounds like a obvious thing butt easy mistake. I feel sorta stupid. Or maybe i did see and forgot

    Easy mistake. Don't feel stupid.

    Most of the electronic scales have a "Tare" button on them. When I make my pizza dough, I put my stand mixer bowl on the scale, push the tare button to zero out the scale, then add my 750 gr flour, 15 gr salt and 3 gr of yeast. DONE!
