The recipe below was inspired by @fullproofbaking
The recipe below makes 1 x 550 g mini loaf
Duration : 2 days
30 g Whole Wheat Bakers Flour
30 g White Baker's Flour
60 g Water
60 g Ripened Starter
Whole Wheat Dough
100 g Whole Wheat Flour
100 g Water @ 35°C
30 g Levain
3.5 g Salt
All White Dough
150 g White Baker's Flour
130 g Water at 35 °C
30 g Levain
6 am - Prepare Levain & Autolyze
Prepare Levain by adding in all the ingredients together and mix until well combined. Leave in a jar with the lid slightly loose. Tie a rubber band around the Levain of the Levain to monitor activity.
At the same time, autolyze both whole wheat dough and all white dough both in separate bowls. Add the required water for each flour and mix until a shaggy dough is formed. Cover both bowl and leave to rest until the Levain is ready.
Note: The Levain used in this recipe is 100% hydration and will take roughly around 4 to 5 hours depending on the ambient of your kitchen.
11 am - Add Levain
5 hours later
Add the required Levain in each dough by pinching and mixing into the doughs. Cover both doughs and rest for another 30 minutes
11:40 am - Add Salt
30 minutes after adding in the Levain
Add in the salt like you would with the Levain until there are no grainy bits of salt into both the dough. Cover and rest for an hour.
The bulk fermentation process starts the moment the salt have been incorporated into the dough
12:50 pm - Laminate
1 hour after salt are added
Spray your work surface with a small amount of water to the space that you will be stretching the dough in to. Transfer the all white sourdough on to the wet bench and very slightly stretch it out flat (not too much at this point). Now place the whole wheat dough and stretch to the similar size as the white dough and place it on top of the white dough. From the center out, stretch the dough in to a square (you do not need to stretch it out too thin, just enough for you to fold the dough on to one another).
Now perform the lamination by folding the top ends towards the center, then fold the bottom ends over to fully cover the top. Repeat the same for the other two ends on your left and right.
Lightly spray a deep dish or container with oil, then transfer the dough on to it. Cover and let it rest for 45 minutes.
1:45 pm - First Coil Fold
Perform the first coil fold by first wetting your hands slightly then reaching both your palm down under to the center of the dough until the tip of your fingers meet. Gently lift the dough up. As you do this, the both ends will start to pull away from the base of the container. Let the both ends fold over onto each other. Turn the container 90° and repeat the coil fold once more for the other two opposite ends.
Cover the dough and let it rest for 45 minutes. At this point, the dough should be sitting at around 24 to 26°C.
2:25 pm -Second Coil Fold
45 minute after the First Coil Fold
Repeat the process like you would for the First Coil Fold.
Cover the dough and let it rest for another 45 minutes.
3:10 pm -Third and Final Coil Fold
45 minutes after the S
