    Brewing Nicely
  1. A fire alarm today meant the building I needed to visit was shut with everyone out in the street. Popped into Gordon St Coffee at Glasgow Central Station to kill a few minutes. Best cafe espresso in about a year. Total pot luck. But really delicious. Wouldn't usually chance it in most places. Laboratorio a few streets away is also consistently good
  2. 200 white 160 wholemeal 40 dark rye +100g 50/50 starter well past ideal feeding (10hrs) 1hr autolyse 5hrs bulk with folds 12hrs fridge. Pretty good even crumb and nice flavour
  3. Had this once in a kitchen cupboard a long time ago and never since. Hopefully wont last Meantime this weekends bake with some more slashing experiments
  4. Hugh can't see the leak clearly in your pic but the grouphead/HX interface looks like it has a gasket that might need replacing see here #13 http://www.cafeparts.com/Espresso-Machine-Parts/Cimbali/Group-M21-Junior No idea on a UK parts source sorry there used to be a Cimbali agent/repair guy in East Kilbride up here in Scotland who was helpful
  5. Thanks! It tastes pretty good. Having dipped in and out of the sourdough thing over a few years it really helps to have a 'go-to' method which you then tweak in small bits. Nothing worse than 24hrs of effort that comes out of the oven as a dough pancake....
  6. Working hard to not be this years tulip tosser...
  7. Back on the dough trail. 300g dove farms white 50g wholemeal 50g dark rye. 100g starter 1:2:2. 1hr autolyse 5hr bowl with hourly stretch and fold. 16hrs fridge. 20/20 covered uncovered in the Lodge. Been watching some amazing slash patterns on Instagram clearly not reproduced here!
  8. A real live pro cyclist on the forum. Cool! Get well soon Wilco and back to the racing. Cormorant also in budget I think? https://cormorant-roasters.business.site/
  9. Rob the two things that have given me the most consistency are following recipe below from garydyke1 really carefully, and baking in the lodge (used to use le creuset but the lodge is better). The only other thing that can go wrong with this method for me is if the starter is too long post feeding, i find 4-5 hrs best. Rice flour is the business for the non stick part as well buy a bag. Resist temptation to vary things until you've got this method failsafe!
  10. Happy Sunday morning. Re: lame don't buy an expensive one, wooden stirrer stick from starbucks and DE blade (this one is a vokshod) total cost 10p max
  11. Jam up 2 holes with sharp end of wooden toothpick and cut off flush with stanley knife etc. Can experiment with which holes. Then just leave, been more than 10yrs my elektra has been that way works great
  12. Baskets arrived in post really quickly thanks all great Cheers Matt
