Using Baker's Percentages
« on: January 15, 2014, 02:07:05 PM »
Would someone please kindly direct me to any threads detailing how to use baker's percentages? I can't seem to find what I'm looking for using the search feature, being as I'm not too sharp. I was born in a truck.

Cheers, and thanks.

Slag,

If you'd like to learn more about baker's percents, you might take a look at the King Arthur article on that subject at http://www.kingarthurflour.com/professional/bakers-percentage.html and also the multi-part tutorial at http://www.wildyeastblog.com/2008/03/22/bakers-percentage-1/.

To see how baker's percents might be used to construct a dough formulation, see Reply 29 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,576.msg5431.html#msg5431.

Once you reasonably comprehend baker's percents, you should be able to use the various dough calculating tools at http://www.pizzamaking.com/dough_tools.html. They were all designed around baker's percents.
