    your imagination of the lye isn't the full story because only sodium bicarbonate lye brings the best result.

    i also use sodium-carbonate lye in an boiling water to dive the bretzeln in it but you get a complete different result.

    and another different is non professionals try to get the carbon dioxide in the dough by letting the yeast work.. but this is to slow for professionals so say just ad yeast for the taste and use bakery soda to get the Carbon dioxide

    professionals can work very fast means instantly because they do not wait for the yeast.

    you can do the same just ad double of dried yeast and bakery soda and do it instantly but waiting is cheaper.

    and sure professional ovens are hot 400C-500C but this isn't so important you only taste the different if you make Pizza a pizza taste much better if you use an 500C professional oven this is because of the speed the pizza loses less taste by water boiling because its so fast 4-5 mins only.
    i have heard most of those "funky" ingredients through reading about bakery but i am a home cook and at the end i want to use "home" stuff unless absolutely necessary

    and all started by my quest for the ultimate home pizza and after all the experimentation i found out that the temperature was the most important factor.

    once my life gets better i ll probably invest in a oven stone and a mixer

    I love my toe shoes. It also strikes up interesting conversations at the wiesn with Bavarians. Some of them get quite angry with me for wearing such things with Lederhosens.

    Cool

    Here's a view of the Theresienwiese taken yesterday 09/04/2011 from the head of the Bavaria:

    On the right you can see that the Augustiner tent has already been prepared.

    @Michael: Since I'm in Munich the entire Wiesn time as well, please PN the specific times when you're in the Augustiner.

    AHHH!!! I see my tent I did good this weekend not thinking about Oktoberfest, but you ruined that for me now

    I'm in Augustiner tent everyday basically and most of the day, except for when I have engagements elsewhere or other friends and colleagues visiting.

    yes thats true its about the temperature and the hot "stone"

    you can buy a 450C stone electric oven for maybe 500€

    He, I arrived AT munich yesterday and I definitively will go To The wies'n on monday. But I'll be in the bräurosl, and might come l8r to the augustiner, given that I find a way to get in:-) so i can't promise anything.

    But maybe I'll try my luck on Sunday, when the italians are (hopefully) gone. When will you be there on those two days?
