After autolyse, mix everything together, if using a mixer do not mis further than 6 minutes.

Let it ferment at room temperature for 35 minutes and the put the dough covered in the fridge for about 20 hours.

the next day (baking day) let the dough about 30 minutes at room temperature before dividing.

Lightly preshape in a boule and let a 15 minute bench rest.
