Rise time for a No-Knead Ciabatta

July 24, 2010 - 12:17pm -- jcorlando


I making a "No Knead Ciabatta" that calls for an 18 hour rise period.


It's summer here and I keep my condo fairly warm, about 78F - 80F

I notice that after 18 hours it seems to have risen and then fallen in the bowl about 1/2 an inch.

Any thoughts on how long it too long to lt it rise?

Do I want it to rise to the point that it doesn't start to fall?

or should I let it rise in the fridge for a day or 2?

Advice needed... my first 'no-knead' experience...

Hi Guys,


I am new to this site though not new to baking by any means.  Have been making my own loaves for several years but now want to give this 'no-knead' technique a go.  Does anyone have a simple basic recipe for a first-timer?  Any tips on how to go about baking my first 'no-knead' loaf?


Many thanks,
