Thanks guys, now i just have to work on the consistent and various types. If i could do it once i should be able to do it again.

It means a lot to me because of the effort that has gone into learning and the length of time the bread has beaten me.

I'm not getting a big head yet FS until i can do it consistently, but it's a start.

The thing that has always got to me is the people that have mastered it in the past and present the world over from fucking cave men to people living in the desert with nothing but sand, camelshit and wild grass. They can make bread and i cannot with all the luxury of the first world. :doh:

Learned the value of a good dough-making machine running the Hobart mixer at my friend's dad's pizzeria when I was a teenager.

Hobart mixers are too big for a home kitchen so I went with their smaller Kitchenaid mixer and a dough hook. It's still homemade bread from scratch, just some mechanical help with the tiring part (developing the gluten). I make pretzels, pizza, and garlic breadsticks too. My Kitchenaid mixer has been running like a top for 17+ years now. It gets especially hard duty between Thanksgiving and New Years. (The PTO head can be configured for sausage making and pasta making too).

I make bread at least twice a week. Here is the machine I use:

My ex-wife took the kitchenaid mixer in the divorce. But left the meat grinder attachment. :roll:

Glad you had some success, Punkin. Natural sourdough eluded me like that. Turned out the starter was too dry.

I'll never forget this guy once.
My mate sold his boat from the highway frontage of my yard. A bloke around the corner bought it, but it was sold without the Minkota bow mount, because i bought it off my mate.

Anyhoos, my mate didn't want to tke the base plate off his boat as it had some glue and bolt holes etc under it. No worries i would buy the bottom half.

Well fuck me of course they had changed the moulding and the new model did not fit the old model.

So round the corner i go to the new owners and propose that we go halves in the cost of a new set, he gets the old (perfect condition) top peice to suit his boat and i'd keep the new set, or vice versa if he preferred, but we still went halves in the cost of the new set. :rkn:

Well the pricks looked at me like i'm trying to sell him the Harbour Bridge and told me he'd rather buy a whole new set and i can buy a whole new set (@ $50 each). :x :ranting:

I just could not believe it that someone could do themselves out of $25 like that and spite someone else for the same amount. It meant he'd have to pull the sikflexed old plate off his boat etc. :doh:

Moral of the story is mud, give him the grinder attachment as what goes around comes around. :lol:

FS, you can have the attachment if you take the ex-wife as well. But heads up...if you're looking for love you might be better off with the meat grinder.
