Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Prepare sous vide water bath, oven, Instant Pot or dehydrator for proofing. And grease the inside of a stainless steel or other heatproof bowl.
Sprinkle yeast into warm water, and set aside to bloom.
Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir together the water and flour mixture. I find it best to get your hands in there, give the bread a good mix until the flour is incorporated and the dough is shaggy.
Place the dough into the greased bowl, and cover with a damp tea towel or plastic wrap.
Set the bowl on the water bath, place it in the oven, or dehydrator - wherever you want to rise.
Allow the dough to rise for 90 minutes, then place your dutch oven into the cold oven and preheat to 450f.
After 90 minutes, turn the bread loaf out onto a floured surface and carefully form a boule. Using gentle motions, and fold the dough into a ball shape.
Place the boule in the centre of a piece of parchment paper, seam side down.
Remove the dutch oven from your oven. Be very careful, it's extremely hot.
Pick up bread boule with the corners of your parchment paper, and lower the boule into the dutch oven.
Replace the lid.
Bake the bread at 450f for 30 minutes covered.
Remove the lid, and bake another 10-15 minutes uncovered - until the crust is a perfect golden brown.
Remove the dutch oven from the oven, and pick up the bread using the corners of the parchment paper again.
Place the bread on a wire cooling rack until cool to the touch before serving.
