This was the experiment for the gluten test. I followed your instructions and the gluten mass was just like you described in your experiment. Both doughs were weighed at 5 ounces or 142 grams on my regular kitchen scale. They were weighed in ounces and grams before the experiment.
The MM dough was tested first. It weighed 41.83 after the test. The MM clone made with KASL weighed 43.65 after the test. You are right that the gluten masses did lose weight after the initial testing and weighings. I let the dough balls out for an hour and just played around with them different times. The MM gluten mass seemed much stronger, in that it almost windowpane when stretching it. The MM clone dough did window pane some, but nothing like the MM dough. I sure donít know what that means. The gluten masses were weighed on my new small scale.
They both are now labeled and placed in my refrigerator for future uses or just to watch to see what happens with a gluten mass.
This was a fun experiment. I like to watch how the starch goes out of dough. I have no idea if all the yeast is also washed out of the dough with the water, or even the oil. I would think the color of the dough is from the molasses, but canít be sure.
If there are more tests to do from here, let me know what you want me to do for a bake test. I kept switching my camera over to different exposures for some reason, so that is why some of the pictures were deleted.
Update this morning on the two dough gluten masses that I removed from the refrigerator.
Both doughs stretch very nicely, are combine into a somewhat smooth gluten masses, have water that could be patted dry again, and look similar in color. For the heck of it I weighed both of them without trying to remove any of the liquid and now the MM gluten mass weighs 38.48 gram and the MM clone gluten mass weighs 35.89 gram. This lead me to wonder if these gluten tests can really tell anything. Sorry, I didnít have time for pictures this morning, but will take some later, if anyone wants to see what the gluten masses look like today.
I guess like Bob posted we still are in Amarillo this morningÖ. Maybe his post will help us get out of there.
