comment Tempering chocolate: ± 2 °C too much?
A digital probe thermometer is a viable alternative. Get a decent one with a quick response time. It's useful in all kinds of cooking, not just chocolate/candy

comment How do I keep dough moist while rising?
In that case, get a big food-grade plastic bag, like a turkey bag, put the baguettes on the back of a sheet pan on some baking paper, and slide the whole shabang into the bag, then seal and put in the fridge.

comment How do I keep dough moist while rising?
You can also use a kitchen towel with a plate on top to keep it 'sealed'. Personally I use plastic wrap and spray oil, though I spray the dough not the wrap because it's easier.
