    Looks great, especially with that sheen - olive oil?

    The sheen might just be the photo. All I did was give it a real light spritz with a water spray bottle before sprinkling the seasoning.
    I got another dough ready last night and threw in a bunch of dried dill.

    I like chia, especially in a pudding.

    image.jpg Fresh and hot, I redeemed myself with this loaf. I baked a loaf a week plus back, that failed visually, but taste and texture were good as ever. From hints I have read on the web, rice flour is the best thing to use for easy release of doughs from proofing baskets. My wife helped by picking up a sack of rice flour last week. Cheers!

    Damn! That's a beauty! I can't ever get my cuts to perform that neatly. Yours turned out perfect.

    I'm actually pretty impressed with using the stoneware loaf pan.

    It looks neat, but it makes the slicing more difficult. Such a tasty loaf - today it made toasted ham sandwiches.

    That's as nice as anything you'd get at a bakery.

    From a Biga I made up last night:

    It was lifting the lid of my 6 qt. Dutch oven. Best spring I've had yet, and tasty too.

    Yup I work off the flour weight with all my percentages. So it's a 600g plain flour loaf 30g Chia 12g salt (2%) 450g water (75%).
    I gotta get some rye back in my life though I just like running it around the 20% Mark just props up the bread nicely.

    You know there are a lot of similarities with bread making and brewing eh crappy starter crappy bread crappy yeast count crappy beer:rolleyes:
