1. I used a commercial mix, but you can replicate with a mix of at least 45% white bread flour, and 45% whole wheat bread flour. The remaining 10% of the mix can be rye flour, bran, and spelled.
2. If you don't have a banneton, use a bowl lined with a floured linen cloth (not cotton), or place free form on parchment paper and cover.
3. If you don't have a couche, use a floured linen cloth (not cotton), or a plastic bag.
