Fred,

In addition to Peterís post, Peterís has set-forth some MM clone formulations for me and I had some good results with using Brer Rabbit Mild flavored Molasses and the Grandmasís Original Molasses with honey or brown sugar.  I donít know if you can purchase either the Brer Rabbit or Grandmaís Molasses products, or are interested, but if you want I could provide the links to those formulations that worked well for me.

When going back though this thread, I had forgot about the picture I posted at Reply 277 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3940.msg155911.html#msg155911  I wonder if that is molasses in those big containers.  I wish I had some kind of good editing picture software to be able to see what was on that one label.

Norma,

I believe that what you are referring to is the spring water. If you go to the Nashville MM website at http://www.mellowmushroom.com/nashville#/store/gallery/nashville/show/photo/108777678450, and look at the MM headquarters photos, you will see that photo #54 is the photo that you mentioned. In that photo, you will see a hang tag on one of the cages (the one on the right, at the top). If you go to the next photo, #55, you will see the hang tag in detail and that it is for the spring water. If you now go back to photo #50, you will see a worker banging a lid on what might be a pail that is used for the molasses.

Norma,

I don't know if you noticed, but this thread has now become the #1 thread on the entire forum in terms of both total posts and numbers of pages of posts. That just about guarantees that almost no one coming to the forum for the first time, or looking for a basic MM clone dough recipe, will read the thread.

Peter,

You are right that what I was referring to was spring water.  I see the photo #50 and I think another one, that it might be molasses in the pail.  I tried to print those photos out to look at them better, but I canít.  Do you know another way for me to print those photos out that I might get a better look at them?

Good catch on the pails of what might be molasses.  :) Did you see in the back how the molasses or whatever it is stacked.

I just took some of those pictures with my camera and will see how they turn out.  They will look bigger before they are edited.  I see that are places that you can copy pictures from the web, but I don't know how to do that.  Maybe another member might know more about that.

Norma,

Most people who are interested in clones of their favorite pizzas are ordinary folks who are just looking for a basic clone dough/pizza recipe that they can use at home with as little fuss and bother as possible, just as Chicago Bob noted. In order to even search the forum for clone doughs/pizzas, they first have to register. Since Steve (the owner of the site) changed the rules relative to membership on the forum, new members have to register in order to conduct searches. They have no other choice. But, once they join and can conduct searches, they are not likely to be patient enough to read through hundreds of posts, or to even scan them, to be able to find what they think they are looking for. And if they can't handle baker's percents, as are prominently used in this thread, they are not likely to get very far. I am not even sure who is reading this thread now. At least among the posters, I think it is you and me and Gene and Chicago Bob, CDNpielover and Steve (Ev) and Fred. That is out of almost 7 billion people in the world :-D.

The idea of taking the pictures with my camera from my computer monitor didnít work that well.  :-D These are three of the pictures.  If I had more time today, I would try to read more about how to copy pictures from a website and try to understand more how to do that. Maybe another members can try, if they are interested.

For whatever reason in pictures 48 and 50 she looks to be  putting lids on.
In picture 53 you can see a tall stack of white buckets with shrink wrap on them, but they look smaller than the ones she is "assembling"
Why do they have to make things so difficult? :-D
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends

I'm one.  But since I have a Mellow Mushroom down the street from me, I've had no interest in learning how to make something that I can so easily purchase.  It is, however, entertaining to watch you all go to work here.  Your passion is magnetic.

The MM#7 clone formulation worked well with the Groebís Golden A Molasses.  The sweetness in the rim was about right.

Norma,

Can you compare the Groeb version of the MM#7 clone dough formulation with the other MM#7 clone dough formulations you have tried, and also in terms of the sweetness and color of the crust and crumb?

Peter,

The Groeb version of the MM#7 clone dough formulation was about the same as the other MM#7 dough formulations I have tried before in terms of the sweetness of the crust.  The crust and crumb were a little darker, but not by much.  I donít know, but think because the Groeb Golden A Molasses is something like the Golden Barrel Supreme Baking Molasses product that is why the results were almost the same.  The texture of the rim was even almost the same.  I think any kind of molasses that is about 14 grams of sugar for a tablespoon seems to work out well in the MM#7 clone dough formulation you set-forth, at least for me.  That also would include the Grandmaís Original Molasses in the MM#7 clone dough formulation.

Peter, Norma and the few others who have contributed to this fine thread, I would have gladly participated but I've learned the hard way if I don't have the correct ingredients it's best not to get involved. In my case molasses. However I have enjoyed watching the process and have followed it since Tampa(Dave), then Biz and Peter first posted. I've learned a lot in the journey vicariously.

Don,

I believe you. Since you indicated an interest in Papa John's clone doughs, it would be natural to extend those to the MM clone doughs. They are both American style chain doughs with a relatively high sugar content and, while I haven't tried it, I suspect that it might be possible to bake MM clones in a conveyor oven using screens. In your case, I wondered whether you would be able to use a blend of your local all-purpose flour and the La Perla Integral flour to get the protein content up and use that blend with a suitable hydration value and agave syrup as a sweetener. However, two of the attributes of molasses is the tangy flavor and the dark color that you might not be able to get with the agave syrup alone.

Don,

I have no idea if this would work for a MM clone dough if you would be interested in trying, but saw that in Mexico they sell Piloncillo which is a form of Mexican sugar that is dark brown in color.  It is known for its strong molasses flavor.  http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-piloncillo.htm and http://mexicanfood.about.com/od/mexicanfoodglossary/g/piloncillo.htm

Doesnít Mexico produce cane syrup?  I donít know but thought Coke uses cane syrup in some of its retro Coke, but could be wrong.  I would think Mexico would grow some cane sugar or make cane juice from it.  Do you know if they do?

Poor Peter would sure have to do some more calculations if you found some form of something to try for your pizzeria for a MM clone. Doesnít Mojito contain sugar cane juice?  Maybe I might be wrong and it might be evaporated cane juice.

Norma, That's a brilliant idea! Piloncillo is available everywhere here, one of the primary uses is in the making of flan. Now all I have to do is reread all this topic :o And yes the Coca Cola tastes different than up north. Mexicans drink more Coke per person than anywhere in the world. My Coca Cola BBQ sauce started out as somewhat of a joke but I've got it tweaked to a point now I use it exclusively. Thanks for the great idea!
