What Does Open Crumb Mean?

Open-crumb sourdough bread refers to a loaf that has large even holes throughout the interior of the bread.

How to Achieve an Open Crumb

An open-crumb sourdough bread requires a strong, and active sourdough starter.

Opt for higher protein flours like bread flour.

You must ensure that your dough is neither under-fermented nor over-fermented.

Higher hydration is essential in achieving an open crumb.

When shaping, ensure that you aren’t destroying the bubbles that have formed within the dough.

The final proofing of your sourdough can create a huge difference in the crumb.
