What size mixer do I need?
« on: January 03, 2018, 04:49:41 PM »
I am making a recipe of:
120g ADY
300g Salt
1 1/2 cup oil
12,000g Flour
8,000g Water

What size of a mixer do I need? Would a 20qt. Suffice?

27 lbs of flour
2.2 gallons of water

20 qt might be small

I use a haussler sp20 which is a beast of a 20 qt spiral mixer. I have made its stated capacity of dough and the power was absolutely no problem.  However, probably a cup or two of dry flour spilled over the top edge of the bowl during the initial mixing.  Given that mixing pizza dough only requires kneading of 3-5 minutes it is quite convenient to make two batches each of 10kg total. I frequently do that.  While the first batch is kneading I weigh out the ingredients for the second batch.

Spiral mixer or planetary? Because of the hook action, a planetary mixer needs to be about 2x bigger or it'll throw half your flour out of the bowl.
In grams we trust.
