Room temp IDY check
« on: November 17, 2018, 12:20:02 PM »
Is this right?

9 hours at 69*F = 0.10% IDY ?  (I'm trying to use Craig's chart.)

It looks to be progressing fast at only 2 hours. So I'm considering putting it in the fridge for a bit.

69 is ambient temp? How did that compare to finished dough temp?

69 is the air temp in my house. I dont know the finished dough temp  :-[ I'd guess on the warm side. I used room temp water.

Keep in mind also that not all IDYs act the same, and vary from brand to brand.  Even within the same brand, variances in performance are not uncommon, depending on how old the yeast is, how it's stored, proofed etc.  As for temperature, unless you measure with a thermometer, your water can be off by several degrees from what you think its actual temperature is.  All of this results in a more unpredictable fermentation process.

I am trying to become more accountable on that myself.

At least in my experience, the timing works nearly perfectly when my finished dough temp is at or under the temperature you're going to hold it at.  At this point I'd move it to the fridge for about an hour and you'll be fine.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

Here it is a 4.5 hours. Its not going as fast i thought. I'm still considering the fridge as its going to be a pan pizza that I want to rise in the pan. So I dont want it to be refrigerated towards the end.
