This is now a simple Baker's percentage calculator that can be used to design and bake recipe's with or without pre ferments.
What is a pre-ferment?
A Pre-ferment is a mix of yeast, flour and water that sometimes also contains salt. This dough is often made the day prior to the bread baking.
The benefit of using a pre-ferment in bread baking are among other things;
- Better taste as enzymes have more time to break down tastless starch molecules into sugars
- Need for less yeast. The pre-ferment works as a natural leaven.
If you want a very simple bread recipe, just press "Calculate recipe".
If you want to use a pre-ferment, just select the "poolish"
pre-ferment type, and use 30%-50% flour in preferment with the slider.
The app is somewhat limited in functionality, but will be developed further. Please comment with feature requests.

- Fixed calculation error. Salt, fat and yeast values were calculated wrong when preferment was used.
