Hi, I’m new here and in some need of advice about my sourdough.
Ive made several loaves but none of them have worked out right. I’ve tried several different recipes.
A friend let me borrow his Tartine Bread book and I followed everything step by step and it was all looking good and I was able to get everything picture perfect up until I removed my loaves from the proofing basket and they immediately spread out and lost all shape. I couldn’t fit them in my Dutch oven anymore. They each took up the area of a half baking sheet.
I baked them anyway just to see what would happen.
The top crust poofed up and almost entirely disconnected from the rest of the bread.
I live in a cold climate and my house gets down to 50F at night so I let them proof on my counters for 12 hours instead of in the fridge since it’s too small.
The recipe is a 70% hydration.
Can anyone tell me where I went wrong?
