Loaf 27

Cotswold Crunch sourdough (**)

Loaves are fine and tasty, but dense and a bit sunken. Would be good to get back to a reliable baseline recipe. Onwards …

about 6pm
  • 80g starter
  • 80g strong white flour
  • 80g water

Menu 32 for full 45 minutes, then menu 30 for a bit. Got online turbo class.

around 9:20pm
  • 380g Cotswold Crunch
  • 290g water
  • 3g salt
  • 15g EVOO

Menu 32, then Menu 10 overnight on timer.


Another dense, sunken loaf. It looks like it has risen and sunk back down. Too much water? Not enough flour?
