Today was my first try at the new formula. It was a struggle for my mixer. With the previous formula, I mixed everything by hand, then split the dough into two parts for the kneading process. It worked remarkably well. This one not so much. Anticipating the problem, I cut the recipe into 3 loaves, but my mixer overheated as it tried to tackle all that dough as I mixed the autolyse into the levain.  I think my mixer will only accommodate 2 loaves at a time. Is there a way to bake 4 loaves by splitting up the dough into two parts? If so, at what point do you do that? What if I hand mixed the autolysed flour, levain, yeast and salt by hand, then split the dough in half to knead by machine? I could then add the oatmeal half at a time into the dough. However, by the time I do all that, I really am right back to the previous recipe…Advice?
