Bulk Fermentation Emergency
I‘m presently 20 minutes away from the end of my bulk fermentation period and I’m not seeing as much gas as is usual. I have doubled the formula for a bigger bake.
My question is: if you double or triple the formula, do you double or triple the amount of stretch and folds you’re supposed to do?
In the past I have tended to overwork the dough, so this time I have only done one turn per half an hour, like I would for a single formula. But is that not enough?
I have promised friends and neighbors bread for tomorrow morning, and I am worried that something has gone wrong.
Is it OK to extend the bulk fermentation. And keep stretching and folding until I get what I want to see?
I’m on a tight schedule here so any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated thank you.
