Overkneaded? Can I save it?

August 3, 2008 - 5:24am -- tbednarick

Good morning. I'm making a sourdough ciabatta this morning and it was coming together nicely in the kitchen aid. In fact, I thought, wow, that dough might be a little too stiff, must be the whole wheat. I was kneading at level two for 4 to 5 minutes when it kind of stopped holding together so well. It still seams to have some gluten, but it's tearing very easy. Can I save this dough?
