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?

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...

Curious.

Re: Kosher Salt
 
Lester,

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.

Jim
