For my second attempt at bread baking, I have once again used a packet mix (multigrain with soy & linseed) and decided to try a split round loaf - if there is such a term.

My first loaf turned out a bit dry, so I increased the moisture content of the dough and decreased the number of heat beads - 18 on top and 6 below and 45 minutes baking time.

I'm happy with this - not as dry as the first one, no burnt crust, easy to cut and tastes good.

...

Next attempt will be rolls.

Jeff

Jeff , not sure what size oven you are using

bread needs a high temperature to bake , about 200 C

I'm new to this bread baking caper, Rat, it's all a big learning curve for me.

The oven is a 12" cast iron and it's all very experimental at this stage to try and produce bread that comes close to traditional German types which as you probably know are heavier in consistency than the traditional light fluffy types most common in Australia.

Thanks for the tip, very much appreciated.

Jeff

Yes,Rat, I've only just started using heat beads with a camp oven, wasn't sure how I would go changing from coals and I think I am converted. The chart certainly takes the guesswork out of it. Just have to fine tune the coordination between number of beads, temp required and baking time.

Thanks Shackles.

That's a nice looking dark rye, the sort of bread I hope to achieve. Well done.

I was going to place an order for some mixes & grains from the Bake & Brew Shop, but freight was the killer. An order for less than 5 kg, dollar value around $25, the cost to freight it via Australia Post here to central Qld worked out to be almost $43 - a bit more than what I would have expected to pay.  Shocked

I think we might have to move to South Oz if I'm going to get really serious about bread baking - you've got the best flour mills over there, plus good fishing.

Just did a search on Aust. Post web site. To send a large Aust. Post satchel up to 5kg. from Adelaide to Sapphire Qld. if that is where you live costs $17.60 plus the cost of a satchel.

Hmmm, that's interesting. When I went to the checkout with the order from Bake & Brew, the freight charge came up as what I stated above, just under $43. Perhaps part of that is also the packaging charge???

I will give them a call later in the morning to confirm it. I haven't been able to track down any other site that supplies the dark rye mix and maybe I will have to order a larger quantity to make it worthwhile.  Undecided
