After the 6th fold, cover and leave it in cool place to ferment for 2 hours. Dust some flour on the table top and pour the dough on it. Pre-shape and leave it covered for 10 minutes before doing a final shaping and place into a floured banetton for final proofing of 3-4 hours.  Finger test at 2.5 hours. If ready, heat up the oven to 260C together with the dutch oven if using. Baked covered for 20 minutes, then remove the cover and reduce temperature to 215 and continue baking another 20 minutes. Tent with foil if browning too much. Cool completely before you slice the bread.

NOTE: DO BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS WHEN HANDLING THE DUTCH OVEN AS IT IS VERY HOT. WEAR VERY THICK MITTENS!
