Combine all ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend for 4 minutes on your mixer’s first speed and then for 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until fully developed. Maintain the dough temperature at 58°F (14.4°C).


Next, divide dough into 6.3 oz (180 g) portions and shape into demi baguettes. Blast freeze for 20 minutes at -22°F (-30°C).


For baking, place into a cooler to defrost overnight. Then, place demi baguettes into a proofer set to 80°F (27°C) with 85 to 90% humidity for approximately 55 minutes.


Score prior baking, and place into a rack, deck or revolving oven with steam preheated to 428 °F (220°C). Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
