My thanks to Floyd!
I'm not usually a 'joiner', but I *had* to join your site.
After reading your lessons, I just made 3 loaves of bread this past weekend, and they all came out good!
The first loaf was an Italian that I baked the same night. The second loaf was the same Italian recipe, but with a biga/starter/sponge, and I baked it the next day. Even better results! The third loaf was a whole wheat loaf. Not as good rise - but still okay tasting! All with King Arthur flour and Kosher salt (and a little honey).
Thank you so much for your website!!!
