    Bread is like BBQ... easy once you figure it out.🤗 Once you understand the critical details it's a forehead slapper, and you wonder why you thought it seemed so difficult before.

    There are some ovens made specifically for baking bread that most people don't even know exist. 6 rack ovens that have built in misting system... that's like baking 60 loaves of bread in a douch oven. Perfect steam at exactly the right time and then it shuts down to brown your crusts.👏

    Breadhead thank you sir. The rolled dough though. Oh my world!! We had the rotating Fisch ovens with 5 or 6 shelves, and some covects and combis. Amazing. I submit we produced far better bakers and pastry arts folk then cooks. Their were more cooks which leftbmore oven time for the bakers.

    Nice inventions! Around here, my wife is the bake-meister. Works for both of us.

    I made tons of breads, cakes, muffins, biscuits, pie crusts, cookies etc.. in culinary school. Not really my thing. I dig the rolled dough and the clafoutis though. I respect Breadhead and admire his dedication to the formula and craft. Just sharing a few pics.

    I love bread. I don't eat as much as I used to though. It would be hard not to with stuff like that around.

    Looks good! One day I'll take up bread. I have never been successful with bread, but one day I'll jump back into it!

    Double everything except for the yeast. That small packet of yeast will rise 1000 grams of flour. Do everything exactly the same and all will be good.👍

    Breadhead when making the hamburger buns the recipe is only for 6 buns. If I want to make 12 buns do I have to make the recipe twice or can I just double everything?

    started a topic Bread... Sometimes you just have to wing it.

    Bread... Sometimes you just have to wing it.

    I'm a sourdough guy... Mostly. Sometimes your starter is not ready when you want to bake bread. So one must wing it and lower themselves to use commercial yeast.

    I decided to do a 15 hour preferment and then add 20% of the flour as Whole Wheat, just for the fun of it.

    All turned out well...
