    i work at a scratch bakery where we make a variety of different breads. For a handful of the dough batches I use a premade bread and bun base. Every 5th or so batch I get a dough full of clumps or batter balls. The water is always the same temperature, and the mixing time is the same. The dough usually weighs about 250 lbs. any advice?

    Are you cleaning the bowl and mixing arm? If you don't clean the bowl and arm for the next batch, it will build up and all those little bits will form balls and clumps.

    Do I need to chill my pie dough before rolling?
