Jason's ciabatta .. in an electrolux assistent?

December 15, 2014 - 5:04am -- rols

ok my first post here, I've been a reader not a writer. 

I've made Jason Molina's ciabatta recipe many times, the wet goopy one. I always used a KitchenAid to beat merry heck out of it. My KitchenAid finally died a few months ago and I finally bought myself an Electrolux assistent. I love it, it's taken a while but I love it.

Questions on flour types

December 13, 2014 - 1:41pm -- HappyHighwayman

So I have some recipes that call for "high extraction flour", which I thought was the "white whole wheat flour" I purchased (King Arthur Brand), but then I saw another recipe that calls for both white whole wheat flour and high extraction flour.

What kind and brand of flours do you use for your high extraction flour?

I typically use white unbleached, whole wheat, rye and the white whole wheat.

Stretch and Fold in an oiled bowl

December 12, 2014 - 8:39pm -- Sourdoughsmitten

Is there a reason why everyone seems to be doing s&f in an oiled bowl while proving dough for batards and baguettes using sourdough? I do the s&f on my counter and cover the dough with an inverted bowl. Is there something wrong with that? Or any benefit to using an oiled bowl? I'm mystified!!

white bread, light weight class

December 9, 2014 - 9:03am -- master_wort

Between all good wort bread this is a simple and very good  white bread in the light weight class. This time I use yeast but a modification of the recipe, you can probably use sourdough instead.

Havent you checked out my last wort bread, I recommended you to do that, here the link. I hope a new wort bread will be published in the end of the week eller beginning of next week.

Ingredients, 1 bread

10 g fresh yeast

Double fermented pumpernickle

December 7, 2014 - 4:17pm -- HappyHighwayman

Double fermented pumpernickle. I soaked crushed rye berries in water with some sourdough starter for 3 days and then mixed that in with the flour (50% white unbleached and 50% high extraction wheat), wheat germ and blackstrap molasses. 4 hour bulk rise and overnight in the fridge before baking in a dutch oven.
