no-knead bread

I followed Jim Lahey's recipe for no knead bread after finding it online last night. Check out my results:

It's the best loaf I've ever made; thick and crusty outside, chewy and moist in. This is a traditional french bread recipe. Just flour, salt, yeast. Or more precisely:
3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
1 5/8 cups water
¼ teaspoon instant yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
Cornmeal or wheat bran as needed.

You can find the full recipe by searching for Jim Lahey or no-knead bread.

Aaron wants to know if it's really possible to make bread without water or any hydration. =)
