    I made two loaves of bread today and I want to make sure they rise good. I have a woodstove in my basement and I just moved them down there. Is this a good spot for them to rise? If I had guess, I would say it is about 70 degrees in the basment.

    I sure hope it's ok...

    Because we always sit our bread to rise on a churn that sits off to one side of the wood stove. Warm, but not hot. Terra's got two loaves rising now for dinner tomorrow.

    I have a pan of rolls rising near our stove right now.

    That is usually where I rise breads. Not so close it cooks, but nice and warm.
