Basically I proof the yeast. While that is proofing I let the mixer blend all the dry stuff.
Dump the water/yeast into the bowl and let Lucille go to town kneading.
Once the dough is ready make a ball out of it, put it in a bowl to rise. Take an hourish.. Cut in half, make dough balls and put them on the counter covered in a tea towel to rise the second time. I lightly dust the counter with flour.
About an hour later they are ready (it doesn't take as long as the first rise but close). I preheat the oven about 20 minutes after the second rise starts to get the stone hot.
I have this scale
and have been pretty happy with it, though I wish I had the higher capacity one on occasion.
