Good evening, at least if you're EST. My name is Jeremy. I developed a taste for making my own bread a few years ago as a college student. I make bread whenever the mood strikes me, but I am very much an amateur baker. I have yet to make a good wheat or rye bread, for example. I've been reading the site off and on for a couple of months, and appreciate all of the posts. I believe that I have improved my baking a great deal, due in large part to sites like this and Bread Alone.
I was given a scale as a gift recently, so I am in the process of trying to learn baking by weight instead of cups. Bit of a strange addaption after a few years of baking. I have been making a pretzel-crust bread and some dinner rolls lately, as they have been a hit. I'm looking to expand into some other kind of breads, but I am at the mercy of my schedule.
