hello from Orange County
Hey everybody. Brand new baker here. I have always enjoyed savory cooking and figure it was time to play with some science...plus, I love fresh bread. I picked up a copy of The Breadmakers apprentice and the concept of baker's percentages was the missing link for my brain...I finally get it. I am planning to go through the lessons here at TFL and have a few questions about weight and measures:
If I choose to measure my water by weight (for percentagee sake) do I measure in straight grams (since water is nearly 1:1 vol/wt)
In lesson one, it calls for 3 cups of flour. KA AP flour is 4.25 oz per cup, 3 cups is 12.75 oz, one oz is 28 gr, so the recipe calls for 357 gr of flour, yet in the comments section the conversions that others have done is closer to 500 grams...what am I missing.
Thanks for indulging my curiosity...and this is before Ive even started.
