Rustic sourdough batard

My go-to recipe for a sourdough loaf. It’s a small loaf, but it’s the right amount for my small household. This is more of a note to my future self for measurements than a detailed recipe. I recommend buying Bryan Ford’s cookbook or following this in-depth guide on NYT Cooking if you’re looking for detailed instructions.
