I have a kitchen aid 325 watt mixer and I mix my dough on the lowest setting. [I think there are 10 settings, but when using the dough hook I keep it on the lowest, the setting under "2" which is something like mix or stir??]

Anyway, is this enough to work with my high gluten four.   Do I need a more powerful mixer or use a higher setting?  I typically do a 5 minute mix, rest 5 minutes, then 5 more minutes mix.

I typically use under 1.5 lbs of flour with about (60%) 4/5 lb of water.

Not long ago I killed a 4.5qt Kitchenaid mixer, I believe it is 325 watts.  It is in being repaired for about $75. Now I'm getting a 6qt. one with 600 watts.

That's about how I do mine. Slow speed (1 up from the lowest, my numbers are rubbing off), with a hook, 5 minute start, 4 minute rest, 4 to 5 minute second mix.
