How do I get a tall and pretty loaf
Newbie's first post.
I would like to learn sourdough baking and make the loaves as pretty as seen on this forum.
My method (pretty much no knead and minimal SF due to busy schedule):
100g 100% hydration starter
200g water (used cold 60F water)
300g KA organic bread flour
In the morning mix and let stand for 10min, lightly SF once, left at room temp 11 hours 60F.
Evening, one more SF, and waited another hour at 60F.
Preshaped, waited for 10min, shaped, and left proof at RT 60F overnight ~8 hours.
Turned into cold dutch oven, baked in preheated 450F oven for 20min covered, baked another 20 uncovered.
How do I achieve good oven spring?
How do I make the loaf brown better?
How do I make tall loaves?
Thanks so much in advance!
