Here is the flour/salt/sugar mixture along with the yeast proofing.

A closer look...

This wasn't as hard as I expected (famous last words). The entire process took about 15 minutes.

Now the dough ball is sitting in my oven (the oven is off!) waiting for the requisite 10-12 hours and I'm about to head to bed and resume when I get up. Would closer to 12 than 10 be a better idea, since I'm not going to do the heat blasts every few hours?

I hope it was ok to leave the dough in the shape of a ball like that and I wasn't supposed to pound it flat or anything. I also hope the yeast is supposed to stink when you proof it, because it sure did!

I'll keep you updated!

Mike,

It looks like you are in good shape. Using 12 hours instead of ten shouldn't make a difference. And leaving the dough in a ball shape is OK too. And, yes, proofing yeast will be on the stinky side.
