time is a ticking

i just wanted to ask.

i am in a rush tomorrow to make some bread so it will have to be fresh yeast.

does anyone think "autolyse for an hour" is worth it for yeast raised breads.

i bottom is sore and splintered from sitting on the fence.

a "YES" or "NO" will do - more would be great.

thanks

John

You cyet also mix the dough tonight and retard it in the fridgerator over-night.  Just cut back on the yeast a bit.

and yes again.  I like Ian's retard with less salt the best though.
