BBA Challenge

It seems that I'm not the only one to have had the idea. Someone has started the BBA Challenge. I'm excited to see a whole community has been built around BBA.

Probably the most useful answer to why my bread came out lacking in flavor looking at the BBA challenge description of French bread is that I didn't knead it enough. It got tired before it was able to get to the point of passing the windowpane test. It seems like most people tire themselves out and get to the point of overheating their dough (up to like 90 degrees F) before it passes: I didn't make it nearly that far.
