Can I bake The Bread Bible’s basic sourdough bread as a baguette?  If yes, what is the temperature and the time?

I would say that any bread that has a hydration level low enough that it will hold its shape could be shaped as a baguette.  That recipe has a 68% hydration, so it should be no problem.  I’d use the same temperature as the published boule or maybe even a bit higher, since the inside of a baguette will cook faster than a boule.  As for how long, well, it’s done when it’s done.  wink
