the best place to let kneaded bread rise?
aaaand another question about bread! where is the best place in your average home/apartment to allow kneaded bread to rise? is room temperature (between 68 and 74 degrees) warm enough to cause adequate rising after a few hours, or does it need to be warmer? i've experimented with using a barely-warmed oven with mixed results - it usually ends up feel much too warm, even hot. i feel like a sunbeam would be ideal, but all the windows in my apartment face north, so they only get direct sunlight for a few hours in the morning.
