Tartine - Ready to Give Up on it - Looking for Someone Who Might Help
Hi again guys.
I posted here before and asked for your help- see link (http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/35978/tartine-sourdough-help-me-understand-what-i-did-wrong)
Sadly, my loafs are not rising as they should and that despite using the book's exact recipe and instructions. I measure the temperature and fold properly. However, I don't use a Dutch oven and I can't buy one right now.
Is it the oval shape of my bread and not the round one? Is it the scoring that is not deep enough? or the steam? I have not clue.
People say wonderful things about the bread and to be honest, I'm tiered of trying executing it properly. If there is a good soul out there who is willing to help, I will be forever thankful.
Alternatively, if you know of a pure sourdough bread which is easier to make, please share.
