Getting Ready for Club Night at HBC
Besides bread making, one of my other hobbies/interests is homebrewing. I have brewed for over 15 years now. I am an all-grain brewer which means I brew with grains rather than extract. I am also an AHA beer judge at certified level. You need to pass a test for this. I am a member of a very fine beer club, QUAFF which put San Diego on the map beerwise by winning the National Homebrew Club of The Year award 6 years consecutively and several California titles. You may ask yourself why am I telling you this when this is a bread oriented forum.
The answer is because I promised to bake bread for the National Homebrew Conference being held in Oakland, CA this year. I promised four Ciabattas. What I baked was 4 Ciabattas plus a bonus bread, my first attempt at a 6 strand braided Italian bread:
