Default Re: 42" build in Virginia

Thanks for checking my thread guys. I have enjoyed using the oven at least once a week thru the summer months. As the fall comes and things cool down a bit, I am trying to decide whether to build an enclosure or to put another coat of stucco and then waterproof the dome with a final coat.

I have been using the basic FB dough recipe but using a Napoli yeast sourdough starter rather than bakers yeast. The dough has been very tasty, not too sour, and very flavorful. I am currently working on perfecting the proofing times to get the best rise. A lot slower rise than using commercial yeast. Last night I made some dough and left it out all night to rise. Nice doubling in size this am. I knocked it down and kneaded again for a second proof. I plan on cooking it tonight, first time not having some refrigeration time.
