Unusually powerful poolish
Has anyone else had this experience ? Last night, while I was asleep, the plastic lid on my pre-ferment bowl blew right off. When I awoke, the lid was sitting on the counter next to the poolish.
34 gram W.W. flour
34 gram Unbleached bread flour
68 gram of water
(to use the absolute minimum of yeast, I take 1/4 cup of water, add 1/8th tsp of dry yeast and stir. Then I use ONLY 2 tsp of the yeasted water for my poolish. discarding the remaining yeasted water.)
Sir until well combined, cover and let ferment 10-12 hours.
Well, as I said, I was very surprised to find the plastic lid had blown right off and was sitting on the counter.
Certainly it was the result of a build up of carbon dioxide gases.
Has it happened to you ?
