Cut the rye loaf open. Slight structural difference from earlier loaf because of a different proof sequence (this one did not proof overnight and hence the gluten is slightly less developed).

The Bauernbrot was so popular, I had to make another loaf.

Tortillas ... okay, so not really bread, but they are gluten free.

+Doug Essinger-Hileman  So, the goal here was a tight, well-ordered crumb---like the Bauernbrot I grew up with. Gluten crosslinking bonds are sulphide bonds (similar to the vulcanization of rubber) and the process is related to a redox reaction. Oxidation (obviously) facilitates this reaction and is really just a fancy (albeit revealing) word for "kneading." You can play with ascorbic acid to help the reaction along as well. I also have a bottle of sodium bisulfate with which I intend to play around. 

The autolyse essentially gives the protease a chance to catabolize the gluten, weakening it in patches, and thereby leading to open crumb bread. By adding a protease inhibitor (salt), you prevent that from happening.

I lived in Japan for a couple years, and if this is the best sushi Gaithersburg has to offer, you're better off without it. The food was mediocre at best. The composition of the rolls was sloppy; the fish wasn't very fresh --- not the product of trained sushi chefs. I'm not sure the positive reviewers have ever eaten decent sushi. Very disappointed.

DON'T USE THIS COMPANY! This company is dishonest. The owner, Nanfer, was very unprofessional when any problem arose. If you have a dispute, he will simply threaten you will legal action, call you a liar, and cuss at you. Look for a more honest company, even if it means you have to pay a bit more, because in the end it will be worth it.
