I tried your recipe but I scale it down to half and this is the end result.... Am not sure if it's suppose to be looking like that..??



In any sense, I like the texture of the crumb and it taste good when toasted

Hello Jeremy,

I am new to the forum and sourdough baking, but i am a pastry baker for years.
You make the dough let it rest for how long? then you make the folds let it rest, fold, rest, fold, rest.
