Title: PizzApp help
Post by: San Jose Dale on November 18, 2021, 12:39:26 PM
I recently figured out that I can add CT ferment to Neapolitan menu, duh! Before using the app, I would make dough, using ice cold water (followed Tony Gemignani formula), stash in the refrigerator for 48hrs. The allow dough to sit at RT for a few hours. I discovered after many cooks, that 3-4 hours worked best before using. Using this method, how would I input with PizzApp?  I donít think taking dough straight from the fridge would start the clock on RT ferment, it takes quite a while to come to RT?  The least RT time the app allows is 1 hr. Using 1 hr Vs 4 hr RT ferment makes a big difference in amount ot yeast, like double. Any guidance?

It takes also time for the dough to cool down in the fridge. This may not equal the time that it takes to warm up again to a 100%, but still, I would use Pizzapp more or less literally. The only thing i recommend is to let the dough start at RT for 1-2 hrs before you put it inside the fridge. I wouldn`t take that time into account in the app, only the  3-4 hrs, when you take it out.
