- 12.5 kg Supreme Brown Bread Mix
- 0.25 kg Yeast
- ± 8.25 L Water
- Place prepared mix, yeast and water into a suitable mixing machine (Spiral recommended).
- Mix in a spiral mixer for 2 minutes on slow speed and between 6 to 8 minutes on fast speed until dough is fully developed.
- Final dough temperature should not exceed 29°C.
- After mixing, remove the dough from the mixer and scale immediately into the prescribed weights.
- Cover the dough pieces with a plastic sheet and rest for 10 minutes.
- Form the dough into a cylindrical shape using either a bread moulder or by hand.
- Place the dough pieces, seam down, into pre-greased bread tins and place in bread trolleys starting from the bottom up.
- Place the trolley into a pre-set prover operating at a temperature of 40°C and a relative humidity (Rh%) of 85%.
- Prove for approximately 40 minutes for sandwich loaves and 50 minutes for open top loaves.
- Bake at a temperature of ± 250°C for 30 to 35 minutes.
- The bread must be removed from the tin immediately after baking.
- To maximise the shelf life the bread should be bagged immediately once cooled, after approximately 90 minutes floor time.
