Community Bake - Maurizio's SD Baguettes - Everyone is Welcome
We are baking Maurizio's Sourdough Baguettes. I am in the process of baking these baguettes for the third time. After test baking, I can say that the instructions and also the flavor of this bread is very good.
Since most bakers are separated by many miles and even different countries, this “community bake” may be the best way to share information and learn together along the way. The idea, for those who want to participate, is that we document our progress with pictures and post. It is suggested that each participant start a new comment to document their progress. As more information and images are available for your bake you can edit that post and append it. We’ll share our success, and just as informative, our failures. During the process we can ask questions, compare results, or offer suggestions. Both expert and novice have a place here.
We plan to start our bake today. We will be following Maurizio's well documented instructions. They can be found here. https://www.theperfectloaf.com/sourdough-baguettes/
I hope you choose to join in. The more the merrier. Even if you don’t come aboard now you can still post your bake and results at any time in the future. All threads are constantly monitored for recent activity. Be sure, someone will be available to assist you.
If you would like to download the spreadsheet containing the formula and also the instructions, CLICK HERE. NOTE - should you decide to mix a smaller batch of dough, open the excel file and click in cell B10, then enter the desired Total Dough Weight in grams. The sheet will auto-calculate all ingredients for you.
Here is a screen grab of the downloadable spreadsheet.
It is good to remember, "we learn more from our failures than we do from success".
Post it all. The good, the bad, and (if you dare) the ugly.
