Yvonne is asking: (1 answer)
Bread makers, hello. I'm a beginner. Today I decided to refrigerate my dough for the first rise, hoping that the yeast will rise slowly and I could bake the bread tomorrow morning. Alas after 3hrs in the fridge it has almost doubled. Do I punch it down and toss it back in the fridge and hopefully bake it tomorrow morning. Please help.

I would suggest you do one of two things. Either punch it down, shape it and freeze it (providing you only let it rise once) or bake it now. If you freeze it, let it thaw and rise a second time. Be warned, it takes a good while to thaw. Good luck.

The same thing happened to me the other day. I just let it be. The next day, I just re-shaped it and baked it. Couldn't really tell the difference.
