    Biga

    Soaker

    Dough

    Directions:

    1. 1
      .Mix the biga ingredients, cover and let rest for 1 hour at room temperature. Then, refrigerate for 3 to 18 hours.
    2. 2
      Mix the soaker, cover and rest for 4 to 19 hours.
    3. 3
      To make the bread, warm the biga at room temperature or in low heat (<100F) until room temperature.
    4. 4
      Spread the biga on a floured counter and layer the soaker over that. Cut dough into 12 pieces and add to mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      Add the remaining ingredients and mix and knead for 7 - 8 minutes. Rest for 5 minutes and knead for 1 to 2 more minutes until a moderate windowpane is achieved.
    6. 6
      Do a stretch and fold. On a lightly floured counter, stretch the dough into a rectangle and fold it like a letter going into an envelope. Turn 90 deg and fold again. Invert and place in an oiled bowl or straight sided clear container.
    7. 7
      Rest for 20 minutes and do another stretch and fold and return to container.
    8. 8
      After the dough has risen to one and a half times it's original volume (30 to 45 more minutes), turn out onto a floured counter.
    9. 9
      Shape into loaves and pan. Let rise, covered with oiled plastic, for 45 minutes or so or until loaves are risen to 150% of their volume.
    10. 10
      Bake in preheated 375F oven until 190-200F internally, about 35-40 minutes. Cool on rack before slicing.

      Improved texture and flavor slightly compared the making whole grain recipes that can be done in 4 hours.... BUT not by much. It's still taste like whole grain bread.
