    Ah! You you actually do have spare yeast.

    Current market prices are 0.0043 grams of yeast for an infraction removal.

    I'll chuck the stamp in for free.

    Default Seitan

    I've started making seitan, a month or so ago the only vital wheat gluten I could find was a 25KG sack which will last a while. Looks like I'm in this for the long haul...

    It's not too bad as meat substitutes go, quite versatile with how it can be flavoured and the protein count is excellent. I mix the 'dough' with gram flour then boil it up in a flavoured broth for an hour and there's a week's worth of fake meat.
    Whatever...

    Throw in an Oxo cube and you’re sorted.

    Also Marmite is great for brining umami into pretty much anything.

    This method also works with high hydration. So far I've gone up to 80% (250g flour, 200ml water) with 50/50 wholemeal/white. Using more water makes it quicker and easier to mix the dough.

    At some point, I'll try pure wholemeal with up to 100% hydration.

    Had a fair bit of success with sourdough starters (after a few false starts as the house wasn't warm enough), once I cracked it I got bored as we don't eat a lot of bread in the house so a loaf every other day was wasteful

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
