    Gabrielle,

    I’m so sorry to hear about the flour mishap. Thankfully this is an uncommon event. It would be my pleasure to help you out in a pinch. If you are close to Kirkland, you are invited to swing by and pick up a bag from the Mothership.

    Please email me – katherine@communityloaves.org and we’ll make some lemonade.

    I try hard not to whine or complain. I know we are All volunteers. Bit I just lost a whole 5 lb. Bag of Trailblazer. ☹️ I’m just frustrated the bag wasn’t sealed and I didn’t notice and ended up with flour all over my kitchen. Heavy sigh 😌 I just ordered more.

    Hi there! Katherine can you please point me in the direction of the Hot Crossed Buns-from last year? I’d like to make them this year for the family. Thank you

    Mariana,

    Two different yeast amounts. The preferment gets a little yeast and then the larger quantity of yeast goes into the mix the next day. Look back on the first page with the ingredients you’ll see that instant yeast is called out twice. Two different sections. One for the preferment, the other for the rest of the mix.

    Do you see it?

    In step 1 (preferment) under instructions, first bullet it says to add the yeast. In step 4 (mix by kitchen aid) under instructions, third bullet it also says to add yeast.  Which is preferable ?

    Thank you so much! It’s what I was thinking just couldn’t pull it together.🙄

    Gabrielle – there is a pound of flour in every loaf. That is the best way to think about it. Although we use 50/50 so a 5 lb bag of Whole Grain + a 5 lb bag of High Extraction flour should get you 10 loaves.

    Hope that helps.

    I should know this but my brain has been over loaded of late with husbands medical stuff. Approximately how many loaves does a 5 lb bag of flour make? 8-10?

    Gabrielle,

    The bread hands of the label point towards the top or the twist tie end. There is a packaging video you can watch it here:

    Not long from now, we won’t have any labels to worry about.

    Hi there everyone,

    I need a visual of how to put the labels on. I was gently chided that I’m doing it wrong. I put the facing the tie end in the back middle of the loaf.

    Kim,

    We’ve not found that we need to score the loaves. Splitting has most commonly been a symptom of under proofing. Yes, the pressure finds the weakest areas and “splits”. A little longer proof should take care of the split.

    I just switched from the modern formula to the classic formula. I really like using sourdough if I can, that’s what starting me baking bread in the first place.  I didn’t have any issues with side cracks with the modern formula I do with the classic.
    Just wondering, when I was making full on sourdough boules, I scored them, now in a loaf pan they split like they want to do that anyway. I’m not doing that until try it for one I’m keeping, but would it help?
