Hamelman, Hand Kneading
I'm new here and have enjoyed all the great information. Thanks to everyone.
I've been a bread baker for years, starting with Amy's Bread (anyone still bake from that book? I loved many of the recipes).
I recently got Hamelman's book out of the library and almost didn't try any recipes because everything is about mixing on speed 1 or speed 2 and I'm trying to get away from using a mixer at all. But reading around here I seems that some people use Hamelman's formulas and mix and knead by hand. So any advice about how to convert the mixer speeds to hand kneading would be greatly appreciated.
