Your profile says Div. C...

Anyways, if that's your question, there isn't anything anyone here can help you with. Get a copy of the rules; it's all outlined there. You have a lot of work ahead of you in this one, so I'd get started and then come back with a more specific question...

Just know you will see some thing similar to can't judge a powder, fats, polymers, lipids, and chemical formulas.

This is a little random, but how are people practicing the baking stuff?

Try making something easy like pancakes with and with out a levening agent. Compare making pancakes with different flours like whole wheat, rice, and all purpose.Study the texture of you final product. I made Toll House cookies substituting oil or shortening or margarine for the butter. BIG difference in the quality of cookie! (All were still edible). Search baking science on line. there are a few really good books that you can get from the library such as Understanding Baking or How Baking Works.

Yeah, you have to make a *homemade* viscotester, or I think you either get DQ'd or points taken off. I saw a really simple Youtube video on how to make one, if you still need to make one. :)

Does anyone have a good link on how to make a simple viscometer? All the websites I have tried seem very complicated and time consuming.

It says in the rules, page 2, how to make an easy, cost-effective one.
