Good luck
I don't know if I want to ferment the dough mix yet, but thanks a bunch for the link. It gave me more information and another variation of the recipe to work with. That's mixing 50% of wheat flour or close to it with the buckwheat flour. I will certainly post my findings, if you care to hear about it

I would say it was more liquid than heavy, if this means anything to anyone , but the salt proportions are correct, about 3 gr of salt per 100 gr of flour.

Not confusing anything, my buckwheat crepes have egg, they are delicious and hold up well to fillings.

OK, lets say that recipe takes eggs, so what would be your recipe with what brand of buckwheat? Thanks

I use King Arthur Buckwheat Flour and their recipe for Buckwheat Crepes.

I never seen that recipe with that many eggs and milk either, but that won't stop me for trying it. Thanks again Princess.
I did double check the original recipe with a friend of mine that runs a Creperie in France, La Passe Sud, and his recipe is just flour, salt and water. But again, the flour in the US is different than in France. I very much hope King Arthur perfected that flour, as they often do with others.
