Variation in Pain De Campagne

I adjusted the wheat to 125g and the AP 675g to have more wheat And to make up for not having rye flour. They proofed for 5 hours on the counter and in the fridge for 9 hours.  I got a nice rise.  I was afraud I had over proofed my dough.  I will never throw out dough just in case it surprises me, and it usually does.

Warm regards,

Casey

Ski thanks for the compliment!  I was overjoyed when I saw it after I took the lid off.  I helped it out with the lame to

Make sure it would open.  

 

Warm Regards,

Casey

Here is the crumb.  I need a new bread knife to cut my boules.

W!ell Done.  No over proofing there at all.  What a nice bake.  Love the bold bake the most - that crust has to be tasty!

Baking is wonderful for creative purposes!  It tastes delicious.  I am working my way toward additions.  I so want to follow the recipe but I did a 9 hour retard and I believe that made the difference,  The book said 10-12 hour retard I think. Thank you so much for the compliment!

Warm Regards,

Casey

I love your crumb. I just made a loaf today myself and I am missing this wonderfully developed crumb as your bread shows. All I can say is well done, looking forward to your next bread shots.

You get such terrific oven spring with Dutch oven baking, it compensates for some over-proofing, but I don't seen any signs of over-proofing in those loaves. They're just over-stimulating my salivary glands!

I watched your lame video several times!  I am working my way to your San Joaquin SD baguette!   I am 

enjoying the support of such an amazing community of learned  bakers.
