Been experiencing some trouble to log in to TFL. Had to request for a new password a couple of times in order to access. Would the administrator kindly have a look at the glitch,please?

final proofing, time, temps and humidity

May 11, 2015 - 8:51pm -- amber108

Hi, this is my first post here just curious if there are any nerdy well experienced bakers here? :) ---Im thinking to start a little micro bakery, sourdough, not commercial yeast assisted. Once I get my ideal dough temp sorted I will need a proofing cupboard/retarder, yes? And so I was wondering if getting a big fridge with controlled temp would do the job, or do I need the proofer to control humidity as well? ....

Beer Yeast in bread

May 9, 2015 - 12:12pm -- ngolovin

Been away from TFL for a while...A good friend of mine is an avid home beer brewer.  He was complaining he always feels guilty throwing away the yeast at one of the last steps (I don't brew, so I really don't know details).  So he gave me a baby food sized jar full of yeast, which he said is still active.  Can this be used for breadmaking?  If so, any ideas as to quantities, relative to what your would use SAF instant yeast.  Thanks to all

Baking Decision Tree

April 29, 2015 - 12:43pm -- EvanZ

A few years ago I made this very simplified version of a decision tree for baking, where basically you go down from the root to the leaves and each branch narrows down to a certain type of baked good. Has anyone seen or thought about a more complete version of this? Think of this like a phylogenetic tree, but instead of classifying living organisms, we're classifying bread! :)
