  • right on NDG!  Hey, check out this page to four different dough calculators:


    The top one will probably be the most useful unless you're using a starter like me, then you'll want the preferement.

    I make mine usually around 65% hydration, sometimes 68% and do a 20% preferment that is at 100% hydration.  Hydration refers to the amount of flour vs water.  1000grams of flour and 600 grams of water = 60% hydration.

    one more question - what brand/kind of digital scale do you recommend? 

    @ringkingpin  do you have a link for the $20 amazon scale you mentioned?

    In closing - here is a cool video my sister shared with me - she lives in Brookyn and this guy is a pizza legend - going to try it over the holiday break . . . http://vimeo.com/16077855

  • NDG, I goofed, it was 25 bucks.  I bought this for a friend.  I liked the fact it had 11lb capacity and he's been using it with no problem. 

    Love the video!  Thanks for posting!

    Please tell me HOW there is ANY moisture which will affect a cook coming from a natural gas 60,000 BTU hurricaine burner? 
    C3H8(g) + 5 O2(g) → 3 CO2(g) + 4 H2O(g)

    :P
    Rocking the Large, a Mini, and a wood-fired oven for good measure.

  • yeah, yeah, I know there is a miniscule amount of moisture but I can guranatee you that nobody on this forum would be able to discern the difference if I baked one on one of my many friends WFO or on my 2stone.

    QUICK UPDATE: over the holiday break I got a chance to eat at Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn, NY.  We arrived before they opened and waited in the rain for about an Hour.  We ordered 3 pizzas and overall wait time was around 2 hours (including the wait outside before they opened).  IT WAS PIZZA BLISS - best ever - crossed off my bucket list!

    Here is the amazing video about this special pizza shop and below is a shot of the master cutting my pizza . .

    I understand now why the Egg is not a brick oven. But a close second w/o having a brick oven. Works for me on pizza and bread.

    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).
