The hops, malts, alcohol and flavor will twist and fold as you bake. A good rule of thumb is to start small and let the flavors expand in the oven. The main reason for this is that the bread is still being baked inside. The crust has trapped enough steam inside the bread to continue working its magic and create a big crumb.
If you let the steam out too soon, all the bread will be drier. Maybe it's because my adventure baking bread began (many years ago) just after baking my second loaf of unkneaded bread and lacked the necessary experience. It brightens my day when my readers, especially those who are new or somewhat new to bread baking, are successful with my recipes. Does that mean I shouldn't use flour for bread? I tried another baguette recipe in the past and it called for flour for bread.
Do the same with pizzas and bread (unless you place the bread from the fermentation baskets directly at the bottom of the clay bells). I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where bread is truly a food group, and traveling a lot to Europe, I became very picky about baked goods, especially bread. For most bread recipes, a pack of single-use active dry yeast (0.25 ounces) contains the perfect amount needed for a loaf of bread. Well, all bread loses its crunch that way, as far as I can tell, that's why a lot of us like to eat bread fresh out of the oven when it's fresher and crispier.
All-purpose white flour has less gluten than white bread flour, which is designed to have the right amount of gluten that bread needs. I found another recipe to try (the second time I baked bread) and enjoyed it, but I liked this recipe better. I've been using Julia Child's baguette recipes, Rose Beranbaum (The Bread Bible) and Jacques Pepin, as well as watching the episodes of The French Chef in which Julia runs with a thermometer at the French pastry school in Paris. To help solve the problem of bread being too crumbly, let's look at some things you can change in your favorite recipes.
The recipe is easy to follow (I've baked several batches so far and they've all been successful) and the bread is incredibly tasty.
