Bread Spread

small h | Aug 20, 201903:18 PM     8

I've gotten pretty good at Jim Leahy's no knead bread, which I knead (because I have a KitchenAid and because I am a REBEL). The dough rises overnight in a bowl in the fridge, and then I loaf it and set it out at room temperature for four hours, as instructed. But on hot days, it expands horizontally instead of vertically. It's still good! It's just...wide. I imagine I can fix this problem by leaving it in the fridge instead of on the counter - how much more time do you think it will need, that way? And is there another method (that doesn't involve a Dutch oven, 'cause I don't have one)?
