Quarantine Bread 30March20

Today’s Quarantine stress-bake is testing the Sifted Artisan Blend from Janies Mill. It’s a blend of Glenn, and Warthog wheat that is milled and sifted to 80% extraction. This loaf I also milled some Colorado Windy White hard white wheat berries from Grains From the Plains to balance the flavor a bit.

20% Janies Mill Sifted Artisan
20% Milled white whole wheat
60% King Arthur Organic bread flour
85% hydration

50% freshly milled whole wheat

I’ve been pushing the percentage of freshly milled whole wheat lately. 50% fresh milled wheat berries, half hard red (GLENN), half hard white (Colorado Windy Wheat). I pushed the hydration to 85% because all that whole wheat is gonna be thirsty, and also to keep the crumb tender.

998g milled wheat berries
994g King Arthur organic bread flour
16g malted barley flour
1683g water
50g salt

6 hour bulk rise
Forgot to count folds :-/
13 hours cold retard at 38 degrees

Monday bread

It’s a pretty straightforward sourdough using lots of odds and ends and almost-done bags of flour with a small percentage of rye for flavor.
