This is the recipe used in the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day" book. It's a great technique, and I encourage anybody interested to go purchase a copy.
Put 9 cups of warm water in your dough tub and add 4.5 T yeast.
Measure out 6 lbs of flour.
Add the flour to the water and add 4.5 T salt on top.
Mix till homogeneous. This will take a bit of elbow-grease (although it's still easier than kneading).
Let the tub sit on your counter for 2-5 hours.
Then move your bucket sit to the fridge. Any time in the next two weeks, shape a loaf, let it rise an hour on a warm stovetop, and then bake for half an hour at 450. (Toss in some ice for a nice crust.)
Mmm, that's good light sourdough.
