If bread is slightly underrisen, a little extra steam ensures that the surface of the loaf remains moist longer, so the bread can rise more. If bread is slightly overrisen, somewhat less steam is necessary, since it is important to have the crust firm more quickly to prevent the bread from flattening out. Proper steaming has a profound effect on bread for a number of reasons: It promotes a rich color to the crust and a surface shine on the loaf, and it also increases the volume of the bread. Let’s look at the details of each of these.

Taste the dough as soon as the ingredients have come together—is the salt in there, and is it the correct amount? Roll a bit of the dough around in the front of your mouth once the mix is done—you will slowly learn to pick up the flavor of the pre-ferment in the raw dough.

If they were within 5 grams of that, they received full score, with 1 point being lost the further the weight strayed from 250. Volume was gauged in relation to weight.

This too was a relatively objective aspect of the judging. Taste was the third criteria considered by the judges, and here some of the lines did blur. After all, what one person deems fine is poor by another’s standard.
