Two YW levains Holy Trinity Rye Pullman
Added crumb shot. A tiny compressed place at top where lid caught when I peaked at before putting in oven😩 have to stop peaking! Taste and fragrance are rich and a deep almost chocolate fragrance. Eating it with butter. Could use a bit more salt. Crumb is like a moist cake very pleasant and not gummy at all. No sour present. Very pleased.
previous bake 86% rye
I’ve made this before for Ian’s post . Watching the fermentation is the key to success. I hurried it once before and the texture wasn’t as fine as the first time I made it. This time I watched for the very first pinhole size bubble on the surface and immediately covered and refrigerated it. Perfect so far. The buttery fragrance is intoxicating. It’s wrapped in towels til tomorrow.
My YW has been wonderful since it vacationed with me at the beach 😊. I made one levain using stored YW starter added stored YW unrefreshed and t65 for 1/2 the called for levain and used stored Rye SD starter to which I added the same stored unrefreshed YW and fresh milled Danco Rye. 570 grams of levain total. All the rest of the flour is Danco rye milled fresh fine grind unsifted. My Holy Trinity of olive oil/Palmetto honey from Florida/ buttermilk made up 90g of the liquid. This is a batter poured into very well buttered 13” Pullman smoothed with wet spatula. The dough had 8 ridges showing when it was first put in the pan. This is right before going in the oven. When it came out filled perfectly to top.
