Liking this poolish bread making, way less time than SD.

Just out of the proofer for 2 hours.
Bouncy with some bubbles.

Skipping a couple pics.

Bake at 450 for 28 mins.

Lid off for 20 mins to brown up. Thinking next time a egg wash to get shiney.

Couple hours cooling time.

The knife my wife got me is really sharp, slight lerning curve with the bow handle as i want to angle my knife still.

No cutting on this board (too nice) Its a serving board. :emoji_blush:
I split the bread up with our 4 friends, only got 4 slices for us.

Great looking bread! I've been experimenting with poolish myself. Definitely easy.

Have you seen the Biga preferment? Like poolish but very thick and the final dough you use less flour.

That looks fantastic . Fits the board nice too .

I was wondering about that . Does it bottom out before you get through the slice ? I guess you just pull to the edge of the counter top .

Yes. I was a biga guy until recently. I've got a couple threads here at SMF on biga pizza dough and bread.

Got turned on to poolish when I made homemade English muffins (another thread here). Did ciabattas on Monday and Tuesday using whey leftover from making homemade ricotta (Soooo easy! Thanks, Chef John at Food Wishes on YouTube). Monday's ciabatta was an edible failure (pic available). Tuesday's was great (no pic, but I can take a pic of the massive sandwich leftovers I made from the ciabatta).

I've got a poolish aging in the fridge I started yesterday after the ciabatta turned out so good (mix in a Mason jar, let ferment start on the counter for a couple hours, then loosely cover and stick in the fridge for days or more). Aging a poolish supposedly makes an easy sourdough because there's no feeding or discards. We'll see.
