New to breadmaking a few simple questions
Welcome me. I stumbled across this site and I am amazed that I found this. Tons of great info here. Thanks!
Ok, my questions.
1. Do I need to buy a couche or something like this to get more height to my French Baguettes? Most of my baguettes are rising well, but they seem a bit flatter than normal.
2. I use a mizture of 1/4 wheat flour and 3/4 bread flour and have been hacing good results. How does one use all wheat? Its always a brick.
3. I am also a homebrewer. I use all grains to make beer. I began making a few loaves using spent beer grains. Does anyone have any recipes for this?
4. I am currently using King Aruther's Whole Wheat and Unbleached White Bread flours. My bread tastes like just "bread" but if I go to an artisan bakery, they sell breads with amazing flavor and the ingredients are just bread flour water salt and yeast. What flours are better? (I also own a Corona flour mill, so I can make my own?)
