news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.
« Last post by Old Rabbit on February 20, 2018, 09:24:23 am »
School kids across the nation are letting Trump and congress know
they are tired of the same old thing. They talk the talk, but never
walk the walk when it comes to gun safety legislation.

Trump and the GOP are calling for a bipartisan committee to look into
the issue. The young people best keep the pressure up because it's
likely the NRA is pressuring Trump and the GOP to stall. They and
the GOP know in most cases if they stall longenough the issue will
fade away. The NRA will likely spend what it takes to limit any and
all firearm legislation. This includes advertising to convince people
they should tell congress to go slow. Otherwise they may loose
their gun rights. Only time will tell.

This issue may cost the GOP and Trump some of their
support if they don't take it seriously. People care
about their kids more than most any other issue.

I upgraded to Firefox 58 only to discover that Mozilla removed the dark theme... and that third-party themes don't work right with this version, so I'm stuck with the nasty default light theme. Now my eyes are bleeding. x_x

(Why do I keep upgrading things? I thought I resolved never to upgrade things again because stuff like this always happens when I upgrade things. I am smouldering with incandescent rage.)

OK. after only leaving the dough to hydrate for an hour. Not much of a difference. I still had to kneed the dough to get it to the proper state. Bread turned out nice. Looks like an hour is not enough time to allow the proteins in the dough to develop enough to cut the time you have to kneed. It was fun. No harm done and I have bread for the week.

Sorry folks, I know it's been over a week. No I haven't stopped wanting to make bread. I geeked out last weekend. Spent hours upon hours of reading scientific studies and old documents. Documents from the 17 and 1800's. Just to find the answer to a question I had. So I not only didn't make any bread. But I ran out of bread on Friday. So yes. Today I'll be making lots of bread. I'm sticking with my go to recipe. Because i have it memorized.  :D Hey, it's good eats. So my experiment with the autolyse technique and hole milk will have to wait till next weekend.

What I will be doing today is a partial autolyse. Letting the dough sit completely mixed for an hour before I kneed it. It was stated on the bread forum by someone that this worked. Making it faster and easier to kneed the bread. By using the bread recipe I'm completely familiar with it will be easer to see how this will effect the outcome of the bread. I'm thinking of treating this first hour as the 'proofing' rise. The first rise before you divide the dough into loaves. This way I wont have to change the amount of yeast I use. I'll simply kneed, divide and then let the dough re rise a second time before baking. The amount of time the yeast will be in contact with the four starches will be the same.  I'll post and let you know how this worked out.
