Batards Tearing!?

May 27, 2011 - 10:29am -- diverpro94

I've been using the recipe for the European Peasant bread in 'Artisan Bread in Minutes a Day' and I've come across one problem. During my proofing stage, my outer membrane on my batard tears along one side.


I think this might be due to the higher hydration compared to my other breads, but I've been using this recipe for a while and it just started this. I have been using a baker's couche also, which might have caused it.
