My second attempt, and this time I added the salt. Huge improvement over my first try. Also, I add a few tablespoons of infused olive oil now to every basic sourdough, and I like the results. My only issue this time was that the egg wash turns the crust a bit brown. Next time, no egg wash.
Experimenting with marketing and selling the bread. Gotta pay for supplies…

Had a hankering for some classic jewish deli rye, so I figured I might as well add that to my repertoire. Or at the very least, start the experimentation process. Who knew that pickle juice is a main ingredient?
