Friday 26th June 2015 is my biggest set of orders to date.
A total of 19 loaves for three different customers, being Sourdough I had to start them on Wednesday afternoon, when I first woke the starters.
On Thursday I fed the starters at 0500 and started making at 1300. Apart from 2 yeasted Spelt and 2 seed and Chickpea I had 6 Spelt Sourdough, 3 Wholemeal Sourdough and 4 White Sourdough. The Chickpea, although yeasted, still required a pre-ferment.
After stretching and folding, everything was ready for an overnight rise at 1800.
That's 4 White
and a pre-ferment.
Roll on 0430 in the morning. That's when I start the yeasted Spelt and finish the Chickpea. The overnight loaves can go into the oven in relays, although I have two ovens I can still only do 4 sourdough loaves at a time, largely due to the size of my baking stones.
If it all goes to plan, I will be finished and cooling off (me and the loaves) by 0800. Ready to load up and deliver at 0900
I'll let you know how I get on.
