Discouraged Wife w/ Un-risen Bread Help!
Looking for advice on helping our bread rise. I bought my wife a Komo Grain Mill for Christmas and some wheat grain and she has tried 10 times now with maybe one or two good loafs. I am savvy in the kitchen but have limited experience with baking bread. I want to do what I can to help her/us in this hobby. What advice do you have for activating yeast and proofing?
The loaf today had the yeast almost spilling out of the small jar it was in when it activated. Loafs rose really well but then fell right before we put them in the oven. Such a bummer!
Any books or courses or youtubers we should watch?
She is also wanting to start sourdough for the first time and I want to support her there as well as I wouldnt be surprised if there are more flops in our future.
