  2. Mix on slow speed if you’re using a KitchenAid mixing machine mix on setting 2 for 3 minutes then on setting 4 for an additional 2 minutes.  The dough should come together but not fully mixed about 80%.
  3. If you don’t have a mixing machine you can use a food processor and pulse mixture until dough is formed or simply knead by hand. 
  4. Transfer dough to a medium-sized greased or flour bowl and cover.
  5. Let sit at room temperature if you plan to use it within 8 hours, this will allow the yeast to propagate more quickly. If you plan to use your biga after 8 hours, you can place it into your refrigerator and use it up to 16 hours, after that your biga will lose its strength.
