Reworked Kayser

by | Jun 25, 2021 | Bread, levain

While trawling through a vast archive from Saveur Magazines gourmet food pages, I came upon an Eric Kayser formula for a quinoa whole wheat bread with raisins. It piqued my curiosity as I have been using a Ferrandi School’s bread baking books that features Kayser among the bakers. But upon calculating one of his formulas I found the numbers off, specifically one that suggested using 55-grams of yeast for 375-grams of flour. It seemed excessive or an editorial mistake. I decided to crunch those numbers – and then with inclusion of some rye levain… kaboom!
