Much as I'd like to keep it open, I have to close the list as of now. We have well over 400 testers signed up, including over 100 new ones this week (the total list may be closer to 500, but many have dropped out over time--it's been a marathon, for sure!). However, even if you missed the cutoff, feel free to register on the Forum and Gallery sites (see earlier posts) to chart our progress and join in on the conversation. When the book is put to bed the Forum will open up into a recipe and information sharing site. Here's a link to the latest newsletter update on the Forum, hosted by Mark Witt: http://www.breadtechnique.com/recipetesters.html Check it out!
The book is coming down to the final few weeks of editing and testing and we're making changes daily as the results come it. I'm spending about 4 hours a day just going through every response personally--can't wait to get my life back, but it's been truly invaluable and I'm extremely grateful to all of you who have participated.
So folks, if you missed the cutoff please don't write to ask if you can join in now--it's just too late in the game, much as I'd like to include you.
I'll be posting again next week, probably Friday, with some new details so stay tuned. Don't forget the Asheville Bread Festival next Saturday, March 28th. I hope to see some of you there.
