From: Alaska from Scratch
3c unbleached all-purpose flour
Whisk together the flour, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle in the water and stir until the mixture comes together (it will be shaggy and sticky, that is perfect). Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 12-24 hours.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place a cast iron Dutch oven in the oven with the lid on. Allow the Dutch oven to heat up for 30 minutes.
Place risen dough onto a heavily floured surface and shape into a round loaf, do not overwork. Place loaf in the heated oven. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and place pot on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
