GELLING YOUR MOLD
After you pour you need to gel. If you did not line your mold, gel, or water discount you will have to wait days to unmold.This is the key of getting the loaf out of the tube. If your mold will fit in your oven upright, use it. Put oven to 170, put plastic wrap over the top and shut off, Don’t over heat in oven, I like to use buckets with heating pads. I place my mold inside, turn on heating pad and cover with another bucket. I watch for gel and do not let it get to hot or you will get tunnels.
