At 90% hydration, this bread is very wet. Using a kneading machine is recommended as this recipe requires quite a long kneading.

Start by mixing together all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add 600g of the water and mix until the water is well incorporated. At this point, if you're using sourdough, you can mix it in as well.

Continue adding the remainder of the water bit by bit, mixing well in-between.

Knead until passed the Windowpane Test, add the yeast and incorporate it. Divide into pieces and shape them into long, wide batons.

Cook in the oven for 30 minutes at 230°C with steam for the first 10 minutes of the cooking.

Let the loafs cool down on a wire rack.
