Digital scale addiction

In the midst of making a bread and the digital scale dies on me. Some observations on that addiction and rules to heed when making bread.

I think without a scale it really hard to add the exact ingredient in bread. Because you need a proper quantity of every thing. I think you must buy a good scale that will help you for a long time so that you avoid that quickly scale dead.

I wouldn't even try baking a loaf using approximate volumes.

I use a small battery-operated digital scale, which I really dislike (it's not very precise, especially when calculating small amounts, like 11g salt; you jump from 9 to 13 to 8 to 12... well you get the point).

My next move will be to buy a good-quality electrical scale (with a plug); i'll keep the small battery muncher as a backup. The bulky, sturdy things they use in restaurants and grocery stores. But without the label printer. lol

When I'm away and I just want to keep my starter alive, I don't always bother using a scale for the feeding process. I use approximately 1/3 cup flour and 1/4 cup water.

 

By the way, your challah looks absolutely gorgeous.
