The dough looks to be a bit under mixed. Did you mix it until it developed a smooth skin?

Hi do doc. I hand mixed it togethet slowly. Then bulk rest for one hour and then balled. They were smooth but after going back to check about an hour or so later they looked like this, I wasn’t sure what to expect this is my first go at biga.

Try 2-hours before balling the next time, I think you'll get a better dough.
