Secondary forming prove time? Answered

During the secondary forming prove, with the loaf in the baking pan, how long does it typically take a loaf to double in size? Is this another 1-2 hour proof period? My first proof took 90 minutes. Thanks for clarifying!

It depends on your ambient temperature. On hot days (78°+ F) it can take anywhere between 30 min to an hour to double. On cooler days (below 68° F) It can take up to 3 hours.
