AB5 weight equivalents in recipes
It seems that I just can't leave well enough alone some days. Even though I just added a stand mixer to the tool box, I had to borrow a copy of "Artisan Breads in 5 Minutes" from the local library when I saw it standing there on the shelf.
Everybody that has read or skimmed through the book already knows that the recipes are printed using volume rather than weight for quantities. I googled the book's website looking for any info on baker's percentages or weight of ingredients I could find. So far, I've found 140g for an AP flour cup weight and 135g for whole wheat. Water is listed as weighing in at 225g for a cup.
I took a chance and mixed a half recipe of light whole wheat for baking tomorrow morning and it looks like 76% poolish to me.
Has anyone else come to the same percentage and weight equivalents? I'm not heavily invested in this exercise, it's mostly done out of curiosity so if I missed something, I'll happily read about your experience and suggestions. When Thursday morning comes around, I'll be back to using my starter.
