How much bread can I fit into a basket?
I'm pretty happy with the rye bread I've been making. It's my standard daily bread for sandwiches and with some evening meals. I eat enough of it that I have to make it every other day. I was thinking that I'd like the loaves to be a little bigger.
I use a banneton 8" oval basket and a Lodge Logic combo cooker. I was thinking that I'd like to get a larger basket. A 9" could easily fit, and with a little squeezing, I might even be able to use a 10". But I was wondering if I could simply fit more dough into the basket. It proofs so that it rises just a little above the rim of the basket. My recipe uses 360g flour and 240g water (~67% hydration).
Is there any rule of thumb about how much a basket can handle?
