This thread has gone from temperature to philosophy, I like it.
If your wife turns to vinegar can you restore her to a fine wine, or do you discard and purchase another bottle?

I make Balsamic Reduction in that case. Lots of slow heat to concentrate the sugar.

Then a little vinegar always makes a good salad.

Hi there. We've just built an igloo style pizza oven and are at the end of the curing period. Noticed that the top of the oven was white last night. When you guys talk about the inside of the oven going white when it is hot enough to cook pizzas - is it the whole of of the inside of the oven that goes white or is there still some black on the walls??

Be careful, when you reach this point the top of the dome is dry and therefore gets quite hot, while the lower part of the dome and probably the bottom of the floor at the outside is still damp. This means that the temperature there is quite low. This big temperature difference can cause problems because thermal expansion is directly proportional to temperature. Go slowly still until that persistent ring of black around the base of the oven goes white as well. Try to use the heat of the oven to do some baking and roasting before trying the fire from hell to cook pizza.

Hi James,

That is the temperature scale I use and I think it works well. I use it as a guide once I get clear dome.

Best,

Pat
