This was my first SD bread loaf that was not a Boule. Honestly, it was much easier - or I have maded enough Boule's that this seems easier. either way here is the end product and some verbals on the process:
basic recipe:
  • 100g Starter
  • 350g water
  • 500g flour
  • 10g salt
  • Mix water, starter, and salt. Add flour.
  • Autolyse at room temp about 1 hour
  • Lift and fold
  • 20-25 the first time
  • 2-4 more lift and fold sessions 30-60 minutes apart
  • Bulk fermentation at room temp
  • @68 degrees this is overnight and into next day @24 hours
  • removed from bowl and folded "sides" to make a squarish loaf and stretched into a 10x5 buttered loaf pan.
  • leave a RT till it rises to the top of the pan @5 hours.
  • Bake 425 for 20 then drop to 375 for 25 more.
  • cool and hour and dig in! I also rubbed butter on the top while it was hot

That is gorgeous. All I need is a stick of butter and a slicing knife and I'd be in hog heaven.

Outstanding looking bread. I bet the kitchen and house smell wonderful! OOPS, punched "enter" to fast and didn't thank you for the recipe. 🍻

This is interesting. So if when the starter doubles in size it’s ready to use, does this make a mild flavor sourdough? More like regular bread, kinda? Then if the starter is fed and cut for longer, does this give the traditional sourish taste to the bread?

Nice bread loaf. I'm ready to slap some apple butter on it.

What kind of loaf pan are you using. I'm going to get one.

Oh, man! This loaf of bread looks awesome! I wish I had a piece of this bread right now... What flour did you use? AP or bread flour?
