my dough needs help
I've been baking bread all my life and have just run into a problem. the past 3 loaves I made .. the dough does not look like or feel like bread dough. it is mostly like a thick batter. I use KA bread or AP flour, and make only yeast breads .. no sourdough. I recently changed brands of yeast, from Red Star or Fleischmans to Kroger house brand (initially had awesome results with it) .. and also wonder if I am over kneading ? I use a Kitchenaide stand mixer, and use it for initial kneading, (speed 2 to 4 for 5 - 10 minutes) then a few stretch and folds before forming. my dough rises .. but very little. the KA flour I'm using is a new bag I just bought about 3 weeks ago .. do I have a yeast problem ? flour ? over kneading ? or a combination of these and/or something else ? help, please .. I'm getting tired of seeing all my work go down the disposal ..
