Principle :

The Alveograph test consists of producing a test piece of dough, which, under air pressure, turns into a bubble.
This process reproduces the deformation of the dough when subject to carbon dioxide during fermentation.
The test involves 4 main steps:
1. Mixing our and salted water
2. Preparing five calibrated pieces of dough
3. Putting these pieces of dough to rest
4. Automatically infl ating each piece of dough until the resulting bubble bursts
