what kind of flour I need to use?
« on: February 10, 2014, 11:46:06 AM »
This time I use KASL flour.  I am not satisfied with my dough.

the dough is not elasticity and chewy.

I don't know how to explain my dough.  please see the pictures.

pic1, This is a toast bread. bite easily.  My dough bite  just like this.
pic2 This kind of dough is what I want, very elasticity and chewy.  ( a little exaggerated in picture)

pic4 This is my dough, KASL flour. 72-hour could fermentation. dough with many air bubbles but not elasticity. 
pic3 This is want i want.

 How to improve my dough?

What kind of flour to use can get the result of pic2 and pic3 ?

I have been very happy with Power Flour by Pendleton.  Some of the Pizzerias use Mondako for the lighter style dough. However, I can buy this flour at several places in my area for a reasonable price, so it is my flour of choice.
