    Hi AXW if you start with 63% water which is the low end depending on the time of year, so if your using say 3k of flour it would be 3k x 63% = 1.89k of water if its looking a bit stiff add more

    In a previous life I was a ships cook on a square rigged sailing ship.
    I used to love making bread - it was the best way to get the tar and tallow from the rigging from under my fingernails...

    Once it gets going it will last for ages. Its bloody hard to kill to be honest and you can revive it by resuming feeding.

    I have made the 'no knead' loaves using beer and it does turn out real good.

    Here is a recent sour dough I made with my machine. I'll accept making sour dough might not be the best of ideas if I am brewing...

    I still haven't made my goats cheese and tomato bread yet, made another black olive bread, gives the bread a nice flavour.

    First time baking bread, pretty happy with the results.
    Will find out tomorrow for breakfast what it is like to eat.

    Out of interest, how do you get the pattern on the crust ?
    I assume it has something to do with the type of dough used ?

    What about malt loaf? My sister makes a great malt loaf using Ovaltine, before I knew much about baking I did try to make a malt loaf but burnt the top. I know now I should have covered the top.
    Drawn like a magnet to malt, Ovaltine, Horlicks, Malt biscuits, Malt Loaf, Beer.

    You make a paste out of water, yeast, salt, sugar, rice flour and sesame oil and spread that all over the dough.
