comment Are steaks I had in a cooler over the weekend ok to eat?
@CareyGregory Please try not to post answers in comments. Comments have none of the features that allow folks to vet your information properly (no voting, editing, comments of their own, etc) — which goes doubly so were food safety issues are concerned. Thanks.

comment Can vegetable juices stop bread from rising?
Interesting. This should all be part of the question.

comment Can vegetable juices stop bread from rising?
Can you add a bit of detail to your question like what kind of vegetable juice you used and your trouble-shootting: i.e. why you suspect it was the juice that stopped fermentation? Did you you proof the yeast, etc?

Geo, I edited your question to specify PTFE. Otherwise the answers (and dangers) will vary considerably. If I assumed wrong, please correct the information. Thanks.

comment How to make a sandwich bread with a very soft crust? And what is the ideal temperature to bake sandwich bread?
These comments should be edited into the post itself, especially yours @derobert.

comment How long can I keep espresso in the fridge?
I suggest keeping this question separate/open. Espresso has some distinct culinary uses apart from "drinking coffee." I found it useful as a separate issue.

comment Does spoiled milk make any ingredient?
This is essentially correct. My grandmother's-generation recipes sometimes included "soured milk" (which was as you described), but that was before pasteurization (and now ultra-pasteurization) was the norm. If you try to leave ultra-pasteurized milk out to get "soured milk", it doesn't sour... it rots. You basically have rotten milk and it should be discarded. Culinarily-speaking, it is not the same thing.

comment What is the best way to store ground coffee?
Note that a freezer is good for longer-term storage, but it isn't advisable to scoop it from the freezer for day-to-day use. The frost and condensation from constantly opening a frozen container each day will be way more detrimental than just storing it at room temperature. Remove, say, a week's worth at a time for your daily consumption.
