What a wondeful website!

Hello Everyone ( around the WORLD! )

    I'm new to bread making.. or should I say I'm new to making bread the RIGHT way... I've learned more in an afternoon reading the "lessons" above and a few posts than I've ever learned before. I have a whole wheat Poolish for bread and one for baguettes, made for tomorrow's adventure! I also grind my own wholewheat and it was frustrating making bread. I think I understand now why I've had problems... This website is amazing!

    On a side note. It these troubled times so many are facing, it is so nice learn a basic but fundamental skill that creates so much joy. This is a happy website and may be a new haven for to get my dose of positive energy. I look forward to sharing my successes and mistakes with you all..

TFL is the only forum I know of where you can get feedback from bakers who also mill their own flour for bread baking.

I've been milling flour for bread baking for about 25 years and I've gotten a lot of good feedack from TLF posters - I would encourage you to explore the site as you will find a lot of tips.

to TFL, Risenshine :-)

This is indeed a happy and positive forum.  There's little to no angry words spoken here, making it a haven from the rest of the internet.  I look forward to reading about your successes (and mistakes).
