Really enjoying the bread making. A break from all the sausage for while.

Got another poolish mixed up this morning.

150g filtered water
less than 1/8 tsp yeast
150g Bobs Red mill AP flour

Mix together real good until you get a white gooey blob.

I use Weck tulip jars without the rubber seal or clips.

In proofer for about 8-12 hrs.
Not going to kettle this loaf this time.

For us novice bread makers.. what is a proofer? What's the next step?
 
My wife was at the local farmers market this morning.

She bought me a knife.
Perfect timing . I was looking around the internet last night to find something else to make . I saw some of those " bow knives " . Did a rough sketch , but I was wondering what the length of the blade is ? If you get time of course . Thanks .
Bread boards are getting stacked up . Need another project .

That would be great . Hope I'm not redirecting your thread . If you lay it on its side with a tape opened up next to it , I can blow the picture up to match a tape measure in my hand , then I can measure it myself . Thanks .
