Default Baguette a la Reinhart

Just been doing some experimenting in the electric oven ahead of a bake in the WFO. Managed to find an great baguette baking tray - needed to test that too. Happy with the results.

Thanks for the feedback. The trick is the overnight fermentation.

Here is another summary of the recipe with some refinements:

Excellent baguettes Rossco. Thanks for the 2 links. They are very informative. I've been looking at those baguette pans you have there for a while. Do you put on a backing stone in your oven or just the oven rack?

Hi Dino - nice to hear from you...

The pans were a great find - the holes allow gas to escape and also facilitate browning/cooking underneath the baguette for an even bake.

I bought a new Miele oven a few years ago and it came with a kind of pizza stone which I always leave in the oven when doing my baking - including the baguette. It takes a bit longer to absorb the heat but it is worth it as it provides a good base on which to place the baguette rack. Pic attached for reference (cast iron steamer at bottom).

I have modded the recipe slightly and now work on a 70% hydration using the following mix per 3 baguettes:

Water: 476
Flour: 680
Salt: 14
IDY: 7

Need very little adjustment of the water to get it right. Autolyse 10 mins after rough combining ingredients and another 5 mins rest after a 3 minute beat in KA with dough hook.

After cranking the oven up to its max (280 C) I switch it off, add hot water to the steaming pan and leave for 10 secs. Then, I place the scored baguettes in the oven for 2 mins and after the 2 mins has elapsed, I switch the oven on for 27 mins at 230 C

Have done an experiment using the cheapest "Home Brand" flour from Coles supermarket (95c per kg) and got some really good results. Light, crispy and airy. The protein content is about 10% so not too bad. I would recommend trying some of the cheapest brands available to determine the suitability for long-term use.

This is from a bake this morning..

Today's bake - using Superb bakers flour with a high gluten content. It produced a more chewy texture than the general purpose flour, but nonetheless, it was very edible and had good crunch.

I am finding the cheap 95c per kg Coles Supermarket brand hard to beat for the best all round baguette baking...

Note: fresh yeast used.

Rossco, your post inspired me to take a try at making baguettes. I followed the recipe in the link and let proof overnight in the fridge. My WFO was about 500F this morning when I put the baguettes in the oven. Didn't come out as good looking as yours, but were very tasty with a good texture. Thanks for posting.
