Bread Temperature

Here's a link to an article from KA flour about bread temperature.  This has to be the longest URL on the net, but it works.

This just came up in my recent post (I have NOT been taking the temperature of my bread as I've pulled it out of the oven - I was merely going by color/feel), so this is very timely!

baking bloggers.  Thanks for the reminder of dough temperature.  yesterday I started an all wild yeast (no boosters) gluten free sourdough starter. The first attempt didn't produce a very active starter.  As I stood barefoot in the kitchen mixing a new starter, the chill underfoot made me realize the importance of monitoring dough temperature.  So this batch is getting monitored regularly and steps taken to ensure the temperature doesn't fall below 70 degrees.
