Flour Water Salt Yeast Book.
I started to read the above book by Ken Forkish to learn about how bake Bread and I have found it very good,
I am surprised at how little Yeast is used in the recipe for the Saturday White Bread.
White Flour 1,000g
Fine sea salt 21g
Instant dried yeast 4g
if I wanted to only use 500g flour this would mean 2g of dry yeast, my scales would need to be very accutate or does it not matter to that degree.
The other question on my mind is that I dont like to much salt in the cooking so in this example when baking a 500g loaf,if I only wanted to use 8g of salt instead of the 10g do I need adjust anything else to compensate
for this reduction.
I would appreciate your advice.
