Figuring hydration %s when using a poolish?
« on: January 21, 2013, 10:57:29 AM »
Since my poolish is 1/2 water and 1/2 flour, I have been figuring my overall recipe weight by dividing the poolish weight in 1/2- adding the poolish flour to my flour weight and the poolish water to my water weight. Is this correct? Thanks all!

pie eye,

If you are asking how to account for the poolish in the total dough formulation, you might take a look at the example given at Reply 11 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9908.msg86140.html#msg86140.
