This was incredible bread! Would you care to comment on the proofing? Margie

Hi Margie, This was proofed for about the usual 2 hours. I actually had it in the fridge for about half an hour to slow it down as I was waiting for the wood-fired oven to cool down. I did significantly increase the hydration from what is in the class. This loaf was about 78% hydrated instead of 69%.

I notice the shine to the crumb. My sourdough looks like that, and the crumb has almost a rubbery feel when you touch it. Is that the way sourdough is supposed to be/

Hi Captlynhall~Yes, the crumb is supposed to have that shine and consistency.
