An abject failure

05/04/15 | by david2 [mail] | Categories: Bread

I tried to repeat what I did last time -- with a double failure.  First the recipe:

  • 500G loaf -- intended 500G flour
  • 500G preferment -- assuming (once again) 250G water, and 250G flour
  • 250G flour
  • 10G yeast
  • 10G salt
  • 100G water -- for a total of 350G -- 70%

 

And the result?  I mixed with a paddle in my kitchenaid -- let rise for 1 hour -- and then, when I was forming the loaf -- it just distintegrated as if it had never been mixed -- it was the ODDEST thing -- like a cover split off to reveal stringy flour-covered tubes of dough.  WTF?   Was it not mixed enough?  that seems pretty hard to imagine considering that I spooned the mixed out of the mixing bowl, and it was thick and very classically doughy.

After the first failure, I tried again, with same result.  Also the dough had many holes -- it had no strength at all and the gas was just pouring out -- with all the little pockets of gas escaping.  Maybe too much preferment?  Not sure.
