#BBA Challenge: basic schedule

For those interested in following along with the rough dates for each bread bake in The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge, here’s a table of the breads and their approximate due dates. This doesn’t account for time off for holidays and , you know, life. It’s simply a first look based on the rough draft of “one a week”. Expect it to be different once the group’s settled and things get looked at a little closer.

According to this base schedule, then, we’d possibly be looking at finishing up the Challenge around early March 2010, if no breaks were included and we went right through non-stop.

We won’t be getting to Sourdough bread until at least early December so anyone who still hasn’t fired up a starter has a fair bit of time to go before it is needed. I’d recommend making sure you’re been working your new starter maybe two months prior to requiring it. This would include a week or two to create the culture then a few weeks more for it to strengthen.

This schedule, to reiterate, is just something I worked up and is not “official”. Even when a more definite one gets published, it’s been stressed that anyone can work at their own pace, skip weeks and recipes as needed, etc..

So use this only as a very rough ballpark for now.

  1. Hey, this is neat. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. I think I will print it out and stick it on my fridge. 🙂

    1. Thanks, it’s just a rough schedule I threw together. It’s not official, by any means, Nicole will get that done at some point once setting up the group is taken care of. But it should help get a handle on the overall run of things.

  2. Thanks for the schedule. I’ve already weaved it into my own schedule and looked to see what I’ll be baking when different things are going on in my life.
    I’m trying to arrange to find places to bake while traveling.
