Autumn Sourdough in the Baker Egg

Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,435

First pic; The preferment going into the final dough.  Bread flour, white whole wheat flour and a touch of spelt.  Used my starter cultivated from grape skins.

Proofed and scored.

Steaming, that's not smoke you see.

All done.  Baked three boules, two I gave away, one I kept for meslef.  Awesome crust, thanks to the egg.  Thanks for lookin!

    DMW;  I have an aluminum pizza pan under the plate setter supported by a spider.  I use a plant watering can with a long spout to add water when the boule goes in.  The pan is so hot water jumps and dances around instantly going to steam.  I keep adding water until I have about a cup and a half that settles down and stays in the pan for around 8 minutes of steaming.


    Little Steven; Thanks, I'll make a point to visit more often.


    caliking; The big clock??  Whatever you got there buddy good luck and have fun with your bread even though it's raining.  The stainless Smokeware cap on my Baker Egg laughs at the rain.  I  got a snow shower when I was baking.

    When I bake bread on my BGE... I use a grill extender to get the pizza stone above the felt line. I take the daisy wheel off. I start my ccok at 550 degrees. I score the boule with my knife and then I spray it with water, which will create the steam I need to achive the maximum rise. Then... I place it on the pizza stone and cover it with a stainless steel mixing bowl. The water I sprayed on it, under the mixing bowl will create lots of steam, creating maximum rise. I cook it under the mixing bowl for 20 minutes, remove the mixing bowl and... Turn the temp down to 465 and cook to color. I look through the top vent, no daisy wheel, to see the color of my bread. Trust me... If you go over 205 degrees, it will NOT ruin your crust or crumb.
