4. When I press out dough, my dough snaps back. How do I fix this?

When your dough snaps back, it is typically caused by several factors. Your dough maybe to cold prior to pressing. Letting it get closer to room temp will resolve this problem. The other may be due to the hydration level in your dough. We recommend a minimum 45% hydration in your dough. These can also be resolved by increasing your time and temp on the press.
