Hang over!

Problems with a hang over!

I have recently made what I think is my best tasting bread to date, but I have a slight problem with a 'hang over'.  I was hoping to insert an image of the finished loaf to show you, but I can't find a way at the moment.

However, if you go to my blog at and scroll to the bottom of my blog, you will see exactly what I am talking about.

Barley groats, hulled millet, black sesame seeds, acorn starch, powdered barley malt and duck eggs

September 29, 2012 - 8:15am -- Heidela123

Barley groats
hulled millet
acorn starch
powdered barley malt
duck/hen eggs ( just tossing that in because my flock are producing like crazy! All bakers should have ducks!)

All (but the eggs of course), are leftovers from various projects.
I am purging the larder as I put the fall harvest away.
On the counter there now is this pile of items, my brain is tired and blank, help would be appreciated?

Hey everyone new to the forums! Really excited to be a part of it!

As the subject stated. I found a few but had questions about them.


It has a "Steel Deck" - not sure what the advantages and disadvatages of that are - just wondering if anyone here can let me know.
