Finally after a year I got one I like. I think I finally have it figured out. I was told after last bake to oil the Lame. I have been dipping in water. Ugh! So I oiled it. Ta Da...
Ignore the second loaf. I had a fight with it and it won.
It was to wet. I tried to form it and kept adding flour. It wouldn't rise after that.
So chicken food it is. But, that front loaf is something to be proud of.
So oiling Lame is a must. I also decided that letting it rise some before putting in fridge overnight is a better idea too. So I learned two things this bake. Baking is always a learning experience.
I wish my Dad was here to see it. He loved sourdough bread so much.
He would be proud too I know he would.
