Video Comparing Steam and No Steam
This is the first of a number of experiments that were recently conducted in order to visually compare the differences between 2 identical doughs baked at separate times in a home oven. One baked without any steam and the other baked with an external steam generator (pressure cooker). The Steam Generator will be published and documented in the very near future. By the way - I got the idea for the Steam Generator from Lance, aka Albacore. Here is his article. Lance tells me he got the original idea here.

For this experiment Hamelman's Five-Grain Levain was used. With 34% Seeds and 25% Whole Grain, it seemed that this dough would put the External Steam Generator to the test.
