temperature & LEAVENING

For how long should the dough with Eva Lievito Madre be left to rise? 

Our EVA Lievito Madre is 100% natural yeast. As with all good things, natural yeast needs time to develop in the proper way. Therefore, you should allow approximately 13-16 hours for the dough to rise, at a temperature of about 25-27°C (NOTE: make sure the temperature is kept constant!).

At what temperature should the water be?
In order to meet the leavening time of 15 hours, the water must have a temperature of 24-26°C.

At what temperature should the dough be left to rise?
The optimum temperature is 26-28°C. It is left to rise for about 15 hours or until the dough doubles in volume.
