the little globe under my name links to the page, but I don't think anyone knows what those icons are for. Maybe they should be text.

Hey Guys,

I never saw that thread about my page before. I just responded to a few misunderstandings, so click over and read them on that thread.

I'd love to see more people put their heart and soul into the art of pizza making, and then document it on the Internet... as you've done. Great job!

Using Jeff's pizza dough formula, I baked my first pizza this past weekend.  Based upon Jeff's spreadsheet, I calculated the hydration of the starter he used to be approximately 82%.  If you are reading this, Jeff, is this correct?  I ask because I maintain a starter for bread baking at 125% and needed to adjust the hydration to be consistent with your formula.

Peter,

Thanks for the compliment.  You know someone is a true friend when you buy him a bottle of Opus One in 1986 and he returns 20 years later so you can share the bottle with him.

SteveB,

I was going to ask you if it was an Opus One. After I posted, I went back to my wine unit and saw that I have the same bottle, same year.  Do you have any idea what that year is selling for?

Peter,

Sorry, I don't know what the current selling price is, but I do know that my friend was being more than generous in sharing it with me.  Regarding Jeff's pizza formula, do you know if he uses an 82% hydration starter?

SteveB,

I did a quick check on the '86 Opus One cab and as best I can tell at the retail level in the U.S. it is running somewhere around $300 a bottle (750 ml.). I hope you can tell me that it was a great tasting wine :).

I'm sorry, I don't know the hydration level of Jeff's starter.
