Breads 2 and 3

0.5 tsp salt, 3 cups flour, 4 real tablespoons culture, 1.8 cups water. 12 hour rise. Patted down and folded twice, covered rise for 50 min over warm area. Back at 400 for 10 min with water pan, oil misted and slit top and baked 20 min more. Removed water pan and baked 10 more minutes. Still not rising enough, still too much water; lesson not learned.

3 cups flour, 4 real tablespoons culture, 1.5 cups water + 1tsp, 1.5 tsp salt. 16 hour rise. Patted down and folded twice. Backed at 400 with water pan for 5 min. Oil misted and slit top and backed 20 minutes more. Removed water pan. Baked another 20 min. The overall shape is more correct now, rising up instead of out. Still not browning enough. Need to try more steam, although it looks wet.
