    FFS. Two massively over proved loaves this morning. Just when you think you've nailed it spring arrives with it's warmer nights and messes with your timings!

    Still taste great tho.

    Ha yep, I wrote down the Thoughtful Bread method and it sounds really complicated and long winded.

    I find the longest part to be weighing and mixing everything. That's pretty much step 1. The rest is easy.

    Thanks for the replies, good to know I haven't been angering the bread gods by autolysing with starter in there too!

    @nefarious you've mentioned a few times about autolysing with just the flour and water and adding the starter and salt later. Is there a reason for this? Only asking as I was taught to autolyse with the starter in too then add the salt later.

    I gave your method a go the other day but added too much water initially (by accident) so it's difficult to judge the difference. Might give it another try later on.

    In my defence I'm ill ATM so not the most switched on... Still I knew that guy with the beard was called Gary. I've watched some of his vids and wasn't he the one who finished 6s after the cut off?

    Just replaced the jockey wheels that have needed replacing for years. I bought the replacements well over 3 years ago. The old bearings were long gone then :s

    The advice is for only essential travel. If you're driving up to the peaks for a nice walk then you need to have a word with yourself.

    Anyone else getting fed up with dogs jumping up at them, especially in this time of social distancing etc?
    I'm ok with dogs, I stop running and stand still if they approach but still regularly get them jumping up at me "playing". Getting a bit fed up with it tbh.
