Mixer Dilemma - Help needed
Prior to finding your site I purchased a Viking 7QT stand mixer because I had burned out my kitchen aid stand mixer 2x. Initially Kirstin, my wife, was against the purchase of such an expensive mixer, but I was able to convince her by going on a baking strike. Most of the bread I bake is a whole grain sourdough rye with whole wheat, ground flax, molasses… It is a very heavy/dense good for body and soul bread. I have come to the realization that if I use your “autolyse” method I may no longer need to use my 1000-watt ubermixer to make my bread. This presents a predicament. Better bread or the wrath of Kirstin, for if I were to stop using my Viking mixer she would most certainly notice and not be pleased. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
