Just wanted to share with you a potentially successful bake. This is my variation of Eric Kayser’s Tourte de Meule. I was inspired by Don D’s bake here: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/14445/eric-kayser039s-la-tourte-de-meule
I will post a crumb shot tomorrow.
50g Malted Barley Flour

1/8 tsp ADY
962g Total Dough Yield

10:00am – Knead 1 minute, rest for 1 hr.
11:00am – Turn dough, rest 1 hr.
12:00pm – Shape dough into boule, place in floured linen lined banneton/basket, proof for 2 hrs.
1:00pm – Arrange baking stone and steam pan in oven. Preheat 550F.
