    Excellent! Will hunt this one next. I've also heard good things about the Shiseido Senka one.

    But based on his equipment--do you have a proofer? If not, you might want to look into it, unless you run your home very, very warm. Under 70 degrees apparently produces weak yeast response.

    Another trick is to prewarm your mixing bowl. I think my dad recently ordered a heated bowl. I know he was following a project for a Kitchen-Aid mixing bowl that was double-walled and had a heater and pump to circulate warm water in the space between the walls to keep the bowl at a good temp for yeast to thrive.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    No, I don’t have a proofer (I had to google what it was ) but I keep the house very warm. By far, I’ve only made white bread and some bread bowls. What I’ve found is that letting the dough rise in a preheated (warm) oven with a cup of hot water seems to help the process. As for the yeast, yeah I warm the mixing bowl with a running hot water. More often I use dry active yeast and stir a tbsp of sugar into the yeast. Achieves the right amount of bubbliness that I’m looking for. I’m looking at the making sourdough one of these days, I just don’t have the ‘right’ recipe yet. Thanks for the tip.

    Just get a bread maker and take the dough out when it's ready and do whatever you want with it. They're like $40

    Unless you like feeling kneady...
