Proofing boxes

October 25, 2011 - 8:12am -- mdrdds

I just acquired a small foldable proofing box for home use. I'm not sure what temps I should be using for the bread I make ie. chabata, sourdough, baguettes and rye. Any advise as to proper temps and humidity would be most helpful.

A question about San Fran Sourdough Starter from Sourdough International

October 31, 2010 - 10:32am -- Trishinomaha

I just received my packet of San Francisco Sourdough Starter from Sourdough International. The instructions call for a proofing box for the first five days. Is this absolutely necessary? I have a Styrofoam cooler but don't want to have to run to the hardware store and get the light socket, etc. Anyone have luck growing this starter without constructing the proofing box? I don't want to experiment with this starter since it's pricey.

Thanks for your input!
