Hi from south-central PA

Found this site through a search, looks very friendly and informative!  I'm getting ready to pull 3 baguettes out of the oven, made 'em with 50% preferment per Mr. Reinhart's instructions in The Bread Baker's Apprentice.  It's my second batch from the book, the first being focaccia which turned out well.

I love cooking, baking, and brewing beer, hence my namesake.  Looking forward to learning a lot on here!

Per Peter Reinhart, bread is just solid beer. Or beer is just liquid bread. Either way, sounds like your interests go well together.
