making bread by using ice water

April 6, 2011 - 10:56pm -- sansanmlg

I just moved to United States from Indonesia not long ago and I found out that all the recipes for bread making here has a big different step. During the first step we mix all the ingredient (flour, sugar, yeast, salt) with ice water while in United States , the recipes always says warm water. Does anyone know what make the different? Fyi, Indonesia is a tropical country with hot weather all year ( like summer here).

Thanks for the information.
