I just got an Ankarsrum and am in the process of converting my favorite recipes to the new mixer. I make Rose’s sourdough rye ALL the time. But the Ankarsrum likes water first. So on my first try, I added the levain to the final water, and then added the flour because the levain didn’t mix up at all. Since the recipe calls for a 20 minute auotlyse, BEFORE adding the levain, I let the whole mixture sit for about 20 minutes and then proceeded to the kneading. In my old KA, my mixing was spot on with the recipe: 2 minutes at first speed, 1 minute at first speed with the caraway and salt, 3 minutes at higher speed. This seemed to take much longer to get a window pane.
Can anyone else share their experience? Particularly the order of the mix and the timing.
