First question here, baguette scoring. Please help!
First I would like to express how much I love this site. I just post my first article actually about my baguettes, customized kneading board on sink, and Pain de Campagne. Today I am going to post my first question and I know you guys will definitely help me out!
I have read lots and lots of posts here about scoring. My scoring sometimes work and sometimes don't. When it works, it's like the picture in my post above (sorry about so many pictures). When it's not, it's like this below. Some people seem to have trouble view the picture. So I put the link here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/30584765@N04/8594854343/
The crumb is very airy, like the picture in my post. But the ears are missing. Could you provide possible reasons? I used razar blade different ends each time. It's 75% so kind of dragging as you can tell from the not straight lines. Thank you very much in advance.
