Default Re: Sourdough success!


I did build a door...I'll post a pic later but it's basically a sheet of plywood on the ouitside, a piece of concrete hardi-board on the inside, with two inches of ceramic fiber insulation board sandwiched between. Then I have shop towels encapsulating the hardiboard and fiberboard insulation and then the whole thing is bloted together like a big sandwhich. I can't use it until the oven gets down to bread temps and even then I keep it wet when using. It looks obviously homemade, but I think it's really efficient.

As for your other question, I'm just sliding the bread off the parchment on to the peel. It's a pain in the but to avoid screwing up the loaves and I'm going to get some bannetons today before my bake.
