New Ankarsrum and have a few questions
I started baking bread about two years ago. After a year working by hand I was gifted a KA artisan, which turned out to be pretty terrible for making bread. The gear just busted in it so I just bought myself an Ankarsrum since it seems to be the best home model for making bread. I just have a few questions:
1. I see a lot of variations online when to use the roller and when to use the dough hook. Some say by hydration, some say by weight. Are there some general rules to follow as to when to use the dough hook and when to use the roller?
2. Hamelman's book has very specific kneading times. I understand in general these things vary, but what is the approximate conversion of kneading with a home planetary mixer vs kneading with the Ankarsrum? For example, if he wants you to mix for 3 minutes and then knead on second speed on a planetary mixer for 5-6 minutes, what would the conversion be to amount of time and speed on the Ankarsrum?
Thanks so much!!!!
