Ankarsrum Mixer Help!
Please help. I just purchased a new Ankarsrum 6230 mixer. I just tried to make a stiff starter and a full batch of my 65% sourdough recipe. 1000g of flour 65g water and 220g of my stiff starter. No luck. My stiff starter just sat in the bowl and stuck on the roller and sat there. I had to take it out and knead by hand. My actual dough mixed ok but when it was fully incorporated (which would have happened if I hadn’t moved the dough around manually) it wrapped around the dough hook and stayed there. 30 minutes in the mixer the dough was still not extensible, couldn’t come close to pulling a window pain. Worried about ruining my dough, at 30 minutes I took it out of the mixer. I tried both the roller and the dough hook. I did watch several videos before I used the mixer. Can someone who owns an Ankarsrum 6230 give me hope that I didn’t just make an expensive mistake? Am I doing something wrong? Can it really take over 30 minutes to mix dough? Help!
