Too much hydration?

The dreaded baguettes

September 17, 2012 - 11:35am -- BarbaraK

Hi Everyone I'm new to the forum although I've been reading it for a long time as it's so useful.

I've been baking white/rye bread with the no-knead technique for quite a while and quite successfully but, encouraged by the forum, I really wanted to strike out a bit.

Yesterday I made my first batch of baguettes  very exactly following the recipe from Anis Bouabsa.  As far as I'm aware Giusto's flour is not available in the

UK but I used a real French flour from Wessex Mill which I can buy at the farmer's market without paying a whopping delivery charge.
