Something doesn't add up. The real VPN website has a recipe that differs greatly from the one on Forno Bravo even though FB says theirs is the official one. Has anyone tried both?

Ingredients

By Weight

500gr Molino Caputo Tipo 00 flour

325gr water (65% hydration)

10gr salt

3gr active dry yeast

Water: 1 litre (1000 ml)

Salt: 50-55 grams

Yeast; 3 grams

Flour: 1.7/1.8 kg (depending on strength)

Look at the vast differnces. Compare the VPN to FB.

FB is using only 500 grams of flour wheras VPN is using 1800 grams of flour which means we need to convert the FB recipe to scale up from 500g flour to 1800g flour. Here's what happens when we do.

FB says 10 grams of salt. That's one gram for every 50 grams of flour. So in 1800 grams of flour you would use only 36 grams of salt under the FB, but VPN says 55 grams.

FB says 3 grams of yeast for 500 grams of flour. VPN says 3 grams of yeast for 1800 grams of flour.

FB says 325 grams of water for 500 grams of flour. VPN says 1 liter (1Kg) of water for 1.8Kg of flour. FB's water conversion would be 1170 grams of water in 1800 grams of flour, far more than VPN says.

HELP!
