Poselli Super - 80% Hydration
« on: August 06, 2022, 07:56:39 PM »
I'm having trouble with Poselli Super and getting to 80% hydration. When I mix the dough and start to make gluten, the dough for the first couple of folds, seems to be ok. However after I wait 15 minutes and complete some additional folds the dough starts to break. Eventually the dough becomes very runny - kind of comical.

Does anyone else have any luck with Poselli Super and 80% hydration? I'm making metro/al taglio pizza.

My process is:

Polish: over night at RT
450g Poselli Super
450g water
1.67g idy
 
Combine:
Poselli super 550g
350g water
25g salt
20g olive oil

Mix for 20 minutes then
Complete a 15 minute rest follow by several folds/slaps.
Repeat the rest/folds 4 times.

CF for 3 days. Ball night before cooking and take out 4 hours before baking.

Bake at 350c for 5 minutes
cool
Bake at 350 with toppings/cheese.

I suspect you're not kneading the dough long or hard enough.

Check out the My 100% hydration pizza pan thread. Make sure to check out the links in Reply 3 and Reply 5.

I've used the "high speed, beat the snot out of the batter" technique to go as high as 94% hydration with Polselli Super. Also, COLD water is key: I aim for 47 F/8.3 C.

Thanks for the advice on ensuring to mix the dough enough. I'm using a hand held mixer with the dough hooks on it. Typically I mix for 20 minutes and then followed by 4 folds every 15 minutes. Next time I'll mix for 30 or 40 minutes. I use cold water from the fridge so that portion should be ok.

I ended up reducing the hydration to 70% with my remaining Poselli and the flour performed as expected. I like the taste of Poselli super so I might try it again in the future.
