Here is the recipe
1tsp dry yeast
1 cup water
1/2 c. Rye flour
2 1/3 c. Bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 c. Starter
I live in Texas and it's about 76-78 degrees in the house. I used HEB brand
The starter started with 2tsp dry yeast, 1 1/4 c. Water 2 c. Bread flour. I feed it with 1 c. Bread flour and 1/2 c. Water either every two weeks or when I make bread. When I make bread usually uses most of it, just enough to mix in some more flour and water.
I knead it 10 min in a stand mixer, it usually comes out a little sticky.
The bread basket is an 8in fielding brotform, I think it's a good size compared to the risen and punched down dough.
It stays deflated in the oven, and I think would sink more if the sides of the cookie sheet stop it. I don't do the finger poke test...what is the finger poke test?
I think I answered all the questions! I think the bread is denser than it should be.
