Super high hydration is now the next challenge !!   YIKES !!

Got the new mixer with the counter rotating dough hooks and stripper.
It weights 1/4 of that of our mid-range Kitchen Aid.  I did pay the extra 10%
( $17.00 Cdn ) for the extended warranty that Amazon offered.   It looks like it
will do the job great ... but for how long ??????

So....as far as bottom of dough ball being drier, is this because it's  in a wooden box? With my plastic containers the bottom is always wetter.


Have some of you tried numbers like this? That's very hydrated! Any adaptations to this to hand-mix?  I think I'd like to test this..but with a poollsh


Is this for pizza you eat with a straw? :-D

Brent,

You already received the mixer?! And you bought two of them?! Haha, good! Well we'll see ^^

Bill,

The wooden box will absorb some humidity indeed.
I never tried 100% hydration. I think it's not that complicated with adequate high gluten flour (I already got to 90% with Cuoco and whole-wheat Red mill's, it was for a no-kneading method test but it worked OK) and of course mixer and double hydration. You should try like the previous video. But imo, there's no need to make such high hydration by hand. I remember Antilife who makes great pizza in teglia who said 75% is usually enough, more is fancy (I don't take it as a truth, but more as a basis).

It looks like one is his kitchenaid and one is the interesting mixer I believe you mentioned.

The Kitchen Aid is Katherine's and I am afraid to overload it and mess it up.  Just side by side for visuals
