Baked ciabatta and can’t find my older post ?

I’m new here and I posted some questions about a week ago and totally forget about it. Now I am having trouble finding that post. To anyone who may have replied I hope you’ll forgive me. I’m still learning how to operate this site from a cell phone. I’m gonna dig for the post now. 

Anyway, I’ve only been baking breads for over a month now and I’ve already dove in and made ciabatta. The wife and 19 year old son loved it. I baked two loaves. And can you believe we kneaded it by hand? We started off with a wooden spoon, my wife and I took turns. It was 86% hydration I believe. Oh my goodness I definitely see now why I need a kitchen aid lol.

I wasn’t too concerned on the shaping them too fancy looking. I actually enjoy the look of this one. I didn’t even take a picture of the second one. I babied it a little more but it didn’t look quite as rustic haha. The outside was just the right crispness and the inside soft and chewy. They had a more rustic look with the flour on the outside - that was until I decided I wanted to rub some melted butter all over the outside. I’m still learning to love these types of breads, I’m an enriched bread fan myself ??❤️
