Thanks John, I'm going to call you tonight about the mixer and also about an Italian Festival going on next month.  If your interested, I'll volunteer my time as your stick man.  I did my first new experiment a day and a half ago, different flour.  Farina 00  used the Lehmann calculator, cake yeast for the first time, rest for 15 min. balled into round metal containers, into 2 diff refrigerators.  One at 50 degrees, one a 35 (Wed 10:30PM).   This morning (Fri. 9AM) the 50 degree dough looks ready to use right away, but i guess if I took them both out at the same time, the 50 degree ones would probably raise too much and the 35 degree one will be right on target.   I'm willing to experiment and I know I have to long road ahead!

Talk to ya later,

Rick

Rick,
John got me a Mecnosud IM5 and it is fantastic.  I wanted to try it out for a while before I posted, but since the subject came up I thought I would chime in.  I am sorry I did not get one earlier.  There is a huge difference in the quality of the dough.  It does not just mix it also aerates the dough properly.  The capacity is about 10 434 gram balls and I have been doing 6 ball batches.  The dough opens up on it's own weight and has no spring back.  I was also surprised at how easy it is to clean up.

Here is a link to the IM5 for a picture and specs.

There is also a video of a small batch being made on UTube that shows it in action.


Here is a picture I took of a 6.73 lb batch I just made.  It is GM Superlative at 58% hydration, 2% Salt, 3% Oil for 6 minutes.

Thanks for the info Bob & John, I guess that mixer will take out one of my dough woes.   The batch will be more consistant.

Those are some nice looking mixers and the dough made in them is even better! I think that would be an essential tool to have if you have to make a decent amount of dough. What do these beauties cost? The link given just shows a pic of the mixer. Thanks in advance!

John, you're killing us here...75-100 women and no pics?!   :'(
That does look like a nice setup though...efficient.
You seem to travel amongst a nice crowd. Good for you!

Check out this new Foldable Chefs Table I scored at the container store! Its all about being efficient and "mobile" so I grabbed it at %25% off ! turns out to be a natural extension of my prep table and hold 84  dough balls underneath !!!  I have butcher block top for it and Marble top ! very sturdy! so I have room for 2 pizza makers! Can kick it up another notch now !!  Guess it does not take much to excite me huh ? But Gotta agree is cool can  use by the barbeque, outdoors, picnic... Or Mobile pizza ! Very cool !! I may go for a second wing off the otherside ?? Matching stainless ! no sanford and son set up here   :-D

Wow that table folds so flat. That must be really handy when storing it for transport. Does it have a pretty high weight rating? It looks sturdy.
More is better..... and too much is just right.
