Alan Scott Oven dimensions
I'm looking for advice
I'm about to start building the 32 x 38 inch Alan Scott oven (same as in the Bread Builder's book). I'd like to make it about 12 inches longer. Can anyone see a problem? I was going to keep the same dome height, dome:door ratio and width. I've read the Bread Builder's chapter on the ideal oven dimensions but length doesn't seem to be mentioned.
I am not familiar with the rectangular Alan Scott oven, as mine is a David Neufeld round design and is 40" internal diameter. I regularly make two 10-11 1.6# batard batches. I wish i had made it larger - 50"+
