This is my second question in my challah making expedition, but I've hit another snag. I made a tactical error and let it rise for a second time (after I braided the loaves) on cutting boards, and now when I try to transfer to a baking sheet it gets all deflated and the pretty braid pattern is hard to detect. Will it be harmed if I punch it down, re-braid, and let it rise again before baking?
