Chef's notes

Having made this dough this morning, I found it very hard to shape. This is due to the recipe having only 58% hydration, ie not enough water, so next time, I will try it with 400g water. Spanish butter is usually unsalted, so if you use salted butter, I would reduce the salt quantity in the dough. However, in general the bread was good, crusty on the outside, with a nice, soft, but twisted looking crumb.
