Heating Pad for Bulk Fermentation?
I seem to have a great starter (doubles in 2 hours, passes float test) but I am not getting any rise during bulk fermentation. So even though I get fantastic oven spring, my loaves are always too dense. I can't seem to get the dough temperature up past 70. My kitchen is about 72. My oven light doesn't work, so I can't use it for warmth and my microwave is over the range, vented to outside, which is currently freezing. Was wondering if anyone has ever used a heating pad during bulk fermentation, or would that overproof?
