proof box and low rising sourdough

April 15, 2009 - 9:11am -- mizrachi

How necessary is a proofing box?  My sourdough loaves taste great but I'm not getting the rise I usually get with commecially yeasted breads.  Would a proof box help remedy this?  Does one use a proofing box set up only in keeping sourdough cultures warm enough to be active or is it also used in proofing the dough itself?

Poor Rising

April 8, 2008 - 6:45am -- sandstone

I need help! Ongoingly I am having difficulty getting my bread to rise nicely. What are common problems leading to an underwhelming rising of my bread? I get NO spring when I put it in the oven. And, over-all, the loaves just don't rise like they are supposed to. Am I deflating too much? (I've tried the stretch and fold) What are common solutions to try for this problem. I'm getting ready to give up on Bread baking. Help!
