I'm new here(only found this page yesterday while researching yeast) and completely new to home bread baking. Its something I've been wanting to get into for a while though. I've never baked a loaf of bread that wasn't done in a breadmaker ( no don't stone me please). Having said that I used to help my mum bake bread as a youngster. Bless the old duck... She's a great cook but she couldn't make bread worth s***.
My wife and I live in rural WA and are on the road towards self sufficiency. I've just recieved a couple of books as a present and am ready to take the plunge. The 2 books I got were Kiko Denzers Build your own earth oven and the Bread Builders by Wing and Scott. If anyone would like to suggest any other essential reading I'm all ears.
I thought I'd just put in an intro before I start asking dumb questions.
