    What's the point of VAR then? That's a disgrace

    I should add I changed up the process slightly with bulk fermentation; did the fold and turns for two hours, left it for an hour and then put in the fridge at midnight instead of doing pre-shape/bench rest/shaping; left in there for about 16 hours or so, then did the above and left them at room temp (covered) for a few hours while preheating the oven.

    As for hydration, 70% (I think); normally calls for 700+50 but I dropped it to 650+50 to see how it panned out

    Felt fairly confident about tonight's bake, predominantly because shaping was a hell of a lot easier and I felt like they had some fairly good tension, but the batard dropped again and the boule didn't have as much oven spring as I'd liked; I might move to using the smaller batard banneton.

    Also any advice on scoring? I've ordered a new grignette in case the one I got with the bannetons is just fucked, but a) scoring inside a dutch oven is hard without burning yourself and b) when I'm trying to slash along the dough just 'tugs' as I try to get something in there

    I see the PC launch of RDR2 went very smoothly, ah.

    I'm still not a third of the way through, but spent most of last evening just hunting...

    Yeah, read that. Still kinda see his point and agree with him.

    Speaking of theatrical releases, anywhere south of the river showing The Irishman? Cineworld, Vue and Picturehouses aren't touching it and I can't be fucked going into central or paying £18 at an Everyman

    I feel like it, yeah; managed to get a more taut ball when pre-shaping as well

    Steam at the moment is used by soaking tea towels, putting them in the microwave for 3 minutes and then on a baking tray below the stone; I then boil a kettle and soak them in the oven some more
