    Default No- Knead Bread Question

    So, I have read about this idea, and finally tried it this past
    weekend- all I can say is Wow! I'd like to try it without using
    packaged yeast as I have a really nice sourdough starter. Anyone here
    try anything like that?

    I just checked my copy of _Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day_ and I don't
    see any mention of this when discussing yeast. I'd say give it a try with a
    small amount and experiment?

    I am x-posting this to alt.bread.recipes, hopefully someone there can
    advise...

    I think she is talking about the NYT no-knead bread, not the Artisan
    bread, Greg. The technique and recipe is a bit different.

    Thanks- can't see why it wouldn't work-just rise longer?

    This was the one baked on a stone...1.5 TBLS ea. yeast & salt, 3 c.
    water, 6.5 cups flour... really wet dough- may try to add a little
    more flour next time as it was like making ciabatta- no way possible
    to shape it! Maybe I'll try chilling the dough as recommended...but,
    what the hell??? Is it just the rising action that builds the gluten
    strands?

    Sure;

    Just go here:

    http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking...-berkeley.html

    IIRC the Boudine bread is allowed to sponge ( ferment) for 18+ hours. Many
    years ago it was labeled "Fermented Bread"

    Sorry - that information is on a knead to know basis only.

    What kind of pot did you have to bake it in? I don't have anything
    big enough as the recommended types that have a lid....I suppose a
    Dutch oven would work, but mine are both aluminum.

    This recipe calls for it to be baked on a stone, so no need for a pan-
    I had the same issues as you!
