even if the recipe and the equipment used are the same, I get different products every time. i think this is due to different parameters of the raw materials besides the amount of water used. (such as the protein content or starch content). i could not establish a connection and standardization of what exactly should be how. i am looking for sources where i can get answers to questions such as which properties of which raw materials should be taken into account or what is the connection with the amount of water fed.
