Loaf 25

Cotswold Crunch Sourdough (****)

Dial back on the starter a bit.

  • 85g starter
  • 85g strong white flour
  • 85g water

20 minutes on menu 32. Still a noticeable amount of flour not mixed in. A bit pressed for time so only about 1ΒΌ hours on menu 30.

Reduce flour a little, increase water.

Main Mix
  • 380g Cotswold Crunch
  • 280g water
  • 3g salt
  • 15g EVOO

20 minutes on Menu 32 then menu 10 overnight.


Still on the dense side but better than Loaf 24. Happy enough.
