The large I used in the past wasn't big enough if I used more than eight cups of flour.
So I bought a larger rectangular container that holds up to 16 litres. (Purchased at a restaurant supply store).
The last month or so I've been making triple batches of dough using 14 cups of flour. (2 cups biga and 12 cups flour). I usually bake three or four baguettes the same day and the remaining dough goes into the fridge and gets used in stages over the next few days.
What the dough looked like after kneading in a Magic Mill. Placed in the container to rise.
After first rise.
Knocked down and left to rise a second time.
After the second rise.
I used one third of the dough to make three loaves and the remaining dough went back into the container and into the fridge. Sometime between today or Sunday I'll bake a few more loaves and maybe a pizza.
Loaves have almost doubled.
The loaves are slashed and slid on to a preheated stone in a 500ÃÂ°F oven.
