IDY and starter
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:51:23 AM »
When making a poolish should i add extra IDY to the poolish and keep they total recipes yeast sperate? Should i take away a certain % of the yeast from the recipe just like you do with the flour and water? If so what percentage do you find best?

Example dough
100% flour
63% water
0.4% IDY
2% salt

Do i add more yest to my poolish then when mixing my final dough add the full 0.4%

Any advice would be appreciated

You subtract your poolish yeast from the formula total, just like the rest of the ingredients.

The amount of yeast to use in the poolish will vary depending on the times and temperatures you are going for. In bakery settings, we often shoot for 12-16 hours at 70F using .06% IDY

Thank you very much.
Maybe this is a stupid question but do I take the example of 0.06% from the flour total of the dough recipe  or the flour total of the poolish flour i use?

Also should i let the complete dough cold ferment for 24~48hrs or just let rise @ room temperature dor a few hours?  any opinions on what you personally feel is better

The .06% would be calculated from the poolish flour.

If youre doing poolish,  Id think a RT dough would be fine. But others still do CF. I dont really use preferments for pizza.
