Oh, Mama, that is too funny! I have been cooking for our church's week long youth conference for several years now. The first year I didn't have my own KA and borrowed my neighbor's to make pizza dough. She recommended the recipe in the book. I made about three batches the night before and when they were ready I just wrapped them in plastic wrap and put them in the fridge thinking that pizza dough doesn't raise THAT much and that the cold would keep it until the next day.
Well, my DH opened the fridge in the morning and I heard him shout and a few crashes. I ran to the kitchen to see the three packages had burst their seams and when the door opened they pushed a whole pile of things out of the fridge. There was dough, glass, liquid and plastic wrap all over the place! I started to cry because my poor dough was no good but then we looked at each other and cracked up laughing. I made only two batches and ended up with more than enough for pizzas to feed 30 people.
Unfortunately I have used the same recipe with my KA and it never turns out the same so that must have been some yeast I used that first time!!
GG, don't give up, once you have it down right you will be enjoying wonderful homemade sourdough bread - there is nothing better!
