    I've got a pullman tin and I'm trying to work out flour weights. Could anyone explain to me why I use 1.7x the recipe and not 2.5x?

    A: We've a recipe on our resources page for a 33x10x10 pullman link. This can be scaled up. A 40x12x12 is 2.5x greater by volume. So, use this recipe and increase by 1.7x (you can use our dough calculator for that if you like) link. You will need to bake for longer to ensure baked right through.

    After about 9 months they call and at that point they left us alone

    Sorry, It's just out of the frame. Came with the house, and it's old and crumbling.

    I probably did too, I think it might have been to do with the front derailleur too. I think there's something for it being internal. Plenty of people breaking something out there and ending a race. Either from banging it falling over, flicking a rock up, or hike a bike push

    Given how many times I had to unwrap my chain from the cogs in Morocco because it had got so dry a rohloff would be faster

    They were in the process of buying/co-owning a titanium factory in the UK in 2015. I'm guessing it didn't happen in the end?

    I'm at the end of 25kg. If I compare it to the Marriages Canadian extra strong I was using I get fewer big air bubbles in the end result. I have found that the dough is a bit easier to handle and I am getting a better spring in the oven. I'm going to try the ciabatta next time

    Is this in Edinburgh? If so we have just decided to have GR windows do a bay, who seemed happy to repair a rotten sill and frame although. We decided to replace with double glazing in the end but weren't pushed to at all.

    I've just got an espresso machine and grinder and have this morning gone through a bag of beans trying to get any resemblance of espresso coming out. I was grinding too fine and didn't know how much coarser I needed to go or how long it would take to get rid of the previous setting.
