Is it okay to deflate my dough?
« on: July 13, 2012, 02:55:56 PM »
Went searching for answers online for 30 minutes, only to find my dough had grown over my mixer covering both the scraper and hook attachments.

Is it okay to deflate the dough so I can retrieve these two items.

I didn't plan on the dough growing right then and there, I meant to put it in the fridge overnight.

Yes. However, if your dough expanded that much in thirty minutes, then either your room temperature is very high, you are using a lot of yeast, or the water temperature was too high, or possibly a combination of these. You will want to get the dough into the refrigerator quickly and watch the dough carefully thereafter. You may need to use the dough tomorrow if it continues to rise too much.
