Just wanted to share with you some pics of the 2.2kg miche that I baked on 12/13/09... It's the biggest bread that I have ever baked, and one of the best tasting... Enjoy!
Big breads are fun!
Hey Tim, do you really mean 12-23-09?
Thanks! I'm baking in the future... This is the loaf I will have baked on 12/23/09. I fixed it...
Great miche, Tim. She's a big one too!
That miche looks great!
What temp did you bake it at, and for how long?
Do you use a stone above the loaf?
Thanks! I baked it on a stone... I preheated the oven to 550F for about 45 minutes. Placed the loaf directly on the stone, placed 2 cups of water a steam pan, sprayed the insides of the oven wall. Baked for 40 minutes at 450F, rotated the loaf and another 1hr at 425F until I got an internal temperature of 205F.

I increased the following recipe to get me about 2500g of dough:
