This bread is actually the third batch of bread using liquid levain. The second batch didn't turn out so good. It was
- Too Sour
- Took way to long to rise
- Not that pretty!
So I'm pretending that bread never existed.
This batch turned out great, except I forget to score the bread before baking. Very important step. I realize that now. The bread made it own score by the way at the bottom. It opened itself to let the air out. Very smart bread!!
I added a soaker to this bread of four grains
To make the soaker you just soak the grains overnight and add it to your bread mix.
I also used more levain this time in my recipe which I think accounts for these lovely large holes.
I added one cup and half levain to about 4 cups flour. I added water as needed. I used maybe one and a half cup. The dough should look sort of wet and shiny.
