Ok Professor! hahah....I think this rye pumpernickel spreadsheet was yours, not David's...he didn't remember it at all.. Since taking that class, it's been my quest to learn more and more! Bread is a magical expression. My latest rye totally putzed out, the old ass loaf pans I used weren't good...hate that...anyway, it's gonna happen again next week, timing is key! J

Ah, very interesting, I use paddle primarily, Kitchen aid still doesn't understand a good mixer for bread! I'm currently doing some real rye baking today, softschrotbrot. After this disaster I made Hamelman's sunflower rye, which was nice, but for me felt a bit under hydrated, and I think adding a altus or old dough soaker gives nicer color and moisture....hey, Nick, when we going to do an interview??

Hey Nick, can you expound on that thought? My friend MC Farine has a post on that on her site. But I think I understand your point, the dough was like play dough, but I felt more water would make it way too hydrated? First attempt...will try it again! Jeremy

Processing is something I'm working at now with nixmalization, wonder if that would work? Flour was easy to get and it's got some vitamins that made this loaf go boom!
