Attention, once and future writers
Please, if you write a cookbook, do not give two completely different recipes similar names!
This morning, I stirred up poolish for "Pain Rustique," p. 111 of Hamelman's. Tonight, I finished mixing "Rustic Bread," p. 115.
The difference in the two recipes is huge, and I ended up with a soupy mess. I think I managed to salvage it, but not before a few choice words.
Of course, I realize that it is entirely my mistake. If I had been paying close attention, I would have noticed that the amount of water called for by the second recipe was almost equal to the total weight of flour. "Pain Rustique" might be a wet dough, but not THAT wet!
Lesson learned: pay attention to the details!
