As the dough is mixing in this stage, the baker observes its development carefully—this is the stage where adjustments can be made to the dough relatively easily. Many professional bakers will not add all of their liquid, holding back 2 to 4 percent until they can determine that the flour is able to absorb it all. It is common for flour stored in a dry kitchen to absorb greater quantities of water than flour stored under humid conditions. After the dough has been adjusted as necessary and it has reached the cleanup stage, one of the following mixing styles is chosen, depending on the type of dough being mixed.

FINAL SHAPING This is the stage at which the baker establishes the final shape of the bread. During this process, consistency in shape and size is the goal. Take the preshaped dough and invert it so that the seam side is up. With flat hands, gently press down to start to expel any large air pockets, evenly distributing the air cells throughout the piece. Do not completely flatten the dough. If the dough is too sticky to handle, sprinkle flour on the work surface as you coax the dough into its final shape.

STEAM TRAY Professional bread ovens have a steam injection function that produces bursts of steam inside the oven. This humidity allows the outer crust of the dough to expand to its fullest potential before its final shape is captured in the baking. To replicate this function, a loaf pan three-quarters filled with metal (such as metal pie weights or clean, miscellaneous hardware), lava rocks, or ceramic briquettes (used in some gas barbecue grills) is placed next to the oven wall and preheated along with the oven.
