What's the harm in letting your dough rise for too long?

easyonthesalt | Oct 13, 2010 08:47 PM

I've been struck with a midnight craving for some warm, fresh crusty bread slathered in butter.

I was going to go mix a quick, no-knead dough, let it rise overnight in the fridge and bake in the morning but of course the recipe only calls for a 90 minute refrigerated rise. Unfortunately there's no way I can stay awake long enough for a rise, proof and bake right now, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to satisfy my bread craving.

Is there any harm in letting it rise overnight so I can proof and bake first thing in the morning?

Maybe you have a few good recipes that would allow an overnight rise? and why don't I ever get these baking urges at a reasonable hour?!
