Sourdough Bread. My First Attempt.

This is my first sourdough bread that I’ve made in a long while, and the first ever wet dough mix.
I think I made it a bit too wet because during proving I could see that it was starting to stick to the bowl. This was a bit of an issue because the idea was to put the dough mix directly on to a heated baking stone. I gave up on this idea, and instead put the dough in to a heated dish, trying not to knock out too much air.

It was far from an elegant process, but I did manage to get the dough in to the dish without too much damage to the dough.
In to the oven it went for 30 minutes. Although once it had cooled I realised a little longer in the oven would have been better.
I think the high water content made the finished bread a little doughy and lacking enough spring.
For a first attempt is was not bad. It tastes good, which is the main thing. My next attempt will be a lot better, I’m certain.
