My Unholy Ciabatta
Yesterday I decided to attempt the poolish Ciabatta from the Breadbaker's Apprentice. Well, I thought I did everything good, it looked like it was going to be great, but when I cut into it, the crumb wasn't very big at all. I'm wondering what I did wrong.
Did I not give it enough kneading? I didn't flip it upside down before baking, it didn't say to, should I have? I was bit frustrated. It still tasted good, but it wasn't what I was hoping for. I did my best not to degass it. It was more like French bread then ciabatta... I still don't know very much about
bread so I was hoping someone could help out!
