Norwich Sourdough

Hello All,

I was just wondering if anyone out there has made the Norwich Sourdough from the Wild Yeast blog.  In her blog, Susan states that she gets 5 loaves out of the recipe.  I actually get 3 good-size loaves, I can't imagine them being much smaller.  Susan's loaves don't look that small in the pictures on her blog,  For those of you who bake this recipe, what is your experience?

Her recipe makes 2 kg which can be divided into whatever sizes you like.  I've made it as 2 loaves at 1 kg each which was too large for me. So I prefer to do 3 loaves at ~650g just like you did or 4 loaves at ~500g.  The loaves pictured on her blog seem to be about 500g each based on her photo of the 4 loaves sitting in the couche.  


 PS: I want to give credit to Susan for the photo. I copied it from her blog.
