Jim Lahey no-knead bread recipe help?
I'm a new baker. I thought the no-knead bread recipe by Jim Lahey looked interesting so I tried it. I have already mixed all the ingredients together, but I am using KA whole wheat flour. I let the mixture rest for 20ish hours and I just took it out and folded it. However, I found it to be very wet and hard to handle. Is this normal or should I add more flour?
Also btw I am planning to bake it on a cookie sheet because I don't have an iron pot. Will this be okay? I'm assusimg I won't get the same crust though. Right?
Also, I was wondering if oiling the bowl with olive oil/etc (as it says in some recipes) is necessary.
