This is my sourdough bake __. making a small loaf (___ gr flour)

Sourdough 30 became almost perfect. the only issue was that the bottom of the bread did not get a nice color and crunchiness. It was maybe because I put the loaf in a thick iron bucket that did not heat up enough.
So I followed the same procedure as with sourdough 29  but  with two modifications:

  1. I fermented and baked the loaf in a thinner aluminum bucket (for cakes) 
  2. I had a little shorter resting time in the fridge (7.5 hours)
  3. and a shorter fermenting time (about 1 hour 25 minutes) as I saw the loaf got a nice growth and elastic surface)

I did so as I did not want to be baking after midnight.
