I am very pleased with my oven spring and grigne and all that business, so here's a new blog post! This is a trifle underproofed, but I rather like the dramatic look of the thing.
- 1/2 cup medium rye flour
- 1/2 cup bread flour
- pinch of yeast
Let sit out overnight (8-12 hours, more if it's cooler, less if it's warmer)
- 1 and 1/8 cup warm water, added to poolish
- Sufficient bread flour to make a moist dough, around 66% hydration
Mix until it comes together well, let rest half an hour (autolyze), then add:
- 2 1/4 tsp salt
and knead until windowpanes or whatever your prefered test is.
Bake at 450F for 40 minutes, with steam at the beginning.
