Notes on Flour

Stolen from here

(Updated) Stolen from here

Hey! In reaction to my recent post on yeast I’ve been asked “what about flour”? Well, I’m not a baker, I’m not into cake, cookies and pastry – just baking bread from time to time.

So here’s my (very condensed and one-sided) information on flour types that I have learned over the last couple of years, with special focus on the differences / translations between american and german. Good sources for more information are cheatsheet.com and weekendbakery.com.

(Concerning that Image: I’ve actually never heard of “Flour Type 812” here in Germany…)

 

 


Notes on Baker’s Yeast

I like baking my own bread from time to time. Recently, I came across some useful information on baker’s yeast that I want to share here:

As you all know, there are two types of yeast being sold in supermarkets – fresh yeast and dry yeast. They’re to be handled a little different each since they come in different forms, but they’re both the same organism (“Saccharomyces cerevisiae” – which derives from its origin from brewing beer). They also both do the same thing: They give your dough fluffiness, airiness and volume by natural fermentation.

Fresh Yeast comes in the form of little cubes, always weighing 42g
Dry Yeast comes as a powdery substance in little packages, always weighing 7g


The Art of Manliness: The Prisoner Workout

 For everyone like me who is too lazy or too busy to hit the gym regularly, here’s an interesting article on how to exercise at home.It’s a bodyweight-workout, no fuss and effective and it doesn’t require any equipment (thus “The Prisoner Workout”). I’m doing this at the moment and I hope i will keep it up. 

I generally recommend that site: The Art of Manliness


6 Hints on camping for the first-timer

Hint #1: RV or Caravan?

A very basic decision… I’ve tried both and I, personally, came to the following conclusions: If you want to explore the surroundings of your campsite or destination extensively, a caravan should be the vehicle of your choice. You can just leave it on the campground and drive around with your car freely.

On the other hand, if you’re more of the “round trip guy” (as I am) an RV is clearly the better decision. It’s easier and faster to set up and dismount, it’s normally more spacious and often better equipped. But you have to take it with you every time you need a ride. Whereas, as a ride it’s far simpler to move and to handle than a car and trailer. Just take a bike with you for short distances.

My favourite Kitchen Cheat Sheets

Here are the few cheat sheets / info images (from the millions you can find on the net) that I really used and that I really learned something from. I hope this helps a little. Categorized:

 

 


Some of my favourite german Campgrounds

Since I’ve been asked “where do you go camping“, here’s a small list. I’ve visited all of these and can verify they’re clean, nice and reasonably priced.

If you want to visit some pretty parts of germany by RV, these are good bets.

 

 

 


Trailer Weight Distribution

I don’t know where this video is from, but it’s very interesting, especially for campers.


My “Grab’n Flee” Kit

This is what I always have packed in a convenient pouch in case “I just want to get out of this shit”. Just grab this, money, a jacket and a toothbrush and get the hell out of here.


Revised: RV Tank Cleaning: How-To and Product Review

Since I fucked up the last post on RV Tank Cleaning, I’ll try to correct that here and now. After 1 1/2 years of not using the RV I had to clean and disinfect the water tanks thoroughly and, while thinking I bought the product I used before, I actually got a different one. This was a little bit more complicated than the one used before, so I I’ll describe here how it worked:
