When you want a loaf take the amount of dough required you can weigh it if you want but I judge it. Flour your hands, use a knife or large scissors to cut the dough. Fold it in on its self to form a round or a torpedo.
Leave to rise in a warm place for an hour or so. Cook at 220c for 30 minutes dependant on size. Leave on a rack to cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
After Making the first batch you can keep it going without the need to add further yeast or start from scratch each time.
Just leave a good hand full of the dough in the container. had some flour to make it easy to handle. Then cut it into small pieces. I find scissors good for this. Then add part of the next 1.5 kilos of flour (About 200g) and rub/mix the old dough in. Then combine the rest of the flour, salt and sugar and mix in the water as with the first batch.
