Predigestion and gluten strength
I have started using a predigestion for my WW loaves to compensate for phytic acid, but I seem to be having trouble getting a good rise out of my loaves. My predigestions have been approx 12-14 hours with 3, 45 min rises after adding the additional ingredients. Has anyone else had any problems with this? I am wondering if the 14 hours is great for dealing with phytic acid but perhaps breaks down the gluten too much for average sized WW loaves. Thoughts?
