Introduction and Questions from a Beginner
I've been lurking and browsing this site for a few weeks and thought it was time to introduce myself. I've been baking for several years but only recently have begun concentrating on bread baking. I only have the time to bake about one or two loaves a week so the learning process is slow going. This site has been wonderful for me because everything I've done so far has been self taught and sometimes this can be very frustrating. Thank you for all of the great advice, pictures, etc.
I do have a few basic questions regarding equipment:
1. I currently do not own a baking stone but would like to acquire one. I have a small electric oven. Would the Fibrament rectangular baking stones be the best way to go. I don't have a car so obtaining tiles or other heavy stones from a home improvement store would be difficult so I would like to order something online.
2. I posted on the thread about Thermapens a question I had regarding its accuracy at gauging the temperature in the center of the loaf since it registers so quickly. Am I better off buying a simple probe thermometer for taking the temperature of the bread? I think I am having issues with underbaking.
That's it for now. I appreciate in advance any responses.:-)
