Five-Grain Levain from "Bread"
I'm excited to have this book. I see so many on TFL using it. This seems to be a popular bread so I thought I would give it a go.
Used the book instructions to the letter except I mixed by hand, which I will say, was quite the task with this dough.
I'm happy with the bread out of the oven and it smells as good or better than any bread I have baked. Be back with a crumb and taste update after a bit.
Wow! this bread is amazing. So many subtle flavors all in one place. A very hearty bread but hard to stop eating.
Here's the crumb.
