An average lower hydration dough might be around 60% – 64% hydration (an average hydration used in large scale bakeries). Wet high hydration Ciabatta dough might be around 75 %- 85% hydration.Continue reading

Heck, I don’t know what I’m saying… knockout? But I knocked a ball out of the park with my first book signing for my memoir, “Reach for Joy” last night (people in the audience were crying as I read excerpts). I can’t give you a special price on my memoir because the publisher controls that (there will be a free e-book download available Nov 26, 27 and 28th), but I can give you a special price on my books and courses. So for this weekend my four volume book, “Discovering Sourdough” is on sale for 13.00.
