k-mix friction factor, is it so high?
I just calculated the friction factor for my relatively new planetary k-mix and got a number that I feel very high,
I made Hamelman’s oatmeal formula which is a straight dough with some extra ingredients such as honey and oil and milk.
total dough was about 1.5Kg
Room temp was 24 Celsius
Flour temp was 24 Celsius
I used cold water from the fridge but measured it with the oatmeal and milk just before the mix – 15 Celsius
I mixed for about 3-4 minutes on 1st speed and additional 12-13 minutes on 2nd speed till I was satisfied with dough development
My final dough was 28 Celsius
28 x 3 = 84
84 – 24 – 24 – 15 = 21
is that correct? 21 degrees Celsius for friction factor??
