Mixed ResultsWell, I made my first loaf. After adding flour and salt and letting it sit for a bit, but not as long as recommended by my friend, I did see it rise some and baked it up. It came up flat (I did want to let it sit longer, but won't have time to deal with it tomorrow), but GOOD. I also only had a flat stoneware thing to bake it in. I will try it in something smaller or divide it between bread pans.
So, despite being flat, the pluses: great texture, great crust, great taste. Dh LOVES it and he's the bread guy around here. So.....I am definitely going to try again this weekend and keep experimenting!
