    It's fun to go back and watch this after seeing the sourdoughnut trilogy. There's a bunch of references shared between them I'd forgotten about.

    Pro tip. 1ml of water is 1g. Therefore, 250 g of water is 250ml i.e. 1cup

    As entertaining as this was when I first watched it, having come back to it after watching a bunch of sourdough making videos I've come to realize how bad BA is at actually explaining anything. BA is henceforth my go to food based comedy channel.

    How long can you leave the dough in the fridge before you bake it? Will leaving it there for longer than overnight improve the flavour?
