Hi Hoodah, welcome to Stella Culinary!


The 10 minute spread is because 20 minutes is the minimum you should autolyse to get the full hydration results. I personally prefer to autolyse sometimes as long as 2 hours, but 20-30 minutes will get the job done.

Oven Temperature

The way ovens heat themselves is with an oscillating temperature differential. So, if you set an oven to 400°F degrees, the oven will actually heat itself to 425°F, turn itself off, drop to 375°F, and then turn itself back on. The temperature differential for ovens depends on the brand, how well tuned the oven is, etc. So in other words, everyone's oven is different, and they should only use my temperatures as a starting point, not gosple. It sounds like you did just that, and your bread came out great.

Don't let the old design in the video confuse you; all the functionality is still the same.

Looking forward to seeing your bread. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
