Hi friends, I'm a newbie and planning to start my mother tomorrow. 2 questions, do I need to keep all other breads away from it? So nowhere near my breadbox? And I bought a proofer, is it better to keep it in there the first 4 weeks or on the counter?
TIA, this is a bucket list first for me so a little nervous....OK alot nervous #128578;

Hi Jennifer,
It's good to keep your mother away from other breads, so keeping it as far away from your breadbox as possible is a good idea.

Regarding the proofer, if your room temperature is a below the average of 7073 degrees Fahrenheit, I would suggest keeping it in the proofer for the first four weeks. If your room temperature is within the average range, there is no need to keep it in the proofer.
