What a difference a brod makes

First time using a brod proofer.  Huge difference to my bread.  Bulk was just as it should have been, although I then messed up by too long a cold proof as I was out of the house way longer than I expected. Would highly recommend the proofer.  Also made yogurt and kefir perfectly. 

Looks like I wasn't bulk proofing enough to get the crumb I wanted, perhaps the humidity helped too   I also bought Trevor's book and that too has helped for that 'ah ha' moment

That looks beautiful. Very soft and light. It’s satisfying when a new gadget actually makes a difference 🙂

Yes. I've been looking at them for some time, but they are not cheap.  Early birthday present !  Like most I have a garage full of useful gadgets gathering dust.
