    Do you wanna try makin' bread?

    Baking Steel is having a live class tomorrow. If that doesn't work for you, they will post the video in their videos on the Baking Steel site after the class. These guys, (or this guy if it's only one person), do know how to bake, but they are not so good at making videos, so be patient...

      If you're interested at all in sourdough, this is a great resource https://www.theperfectloaf.com

      He's incredibly detailed with good pics of how things should look. If you have bakeries in your area, they might be selling starter too.

        hoovarmin nailed it. Tartine does this too. For a lighter crust, just bake for less time (don't adjust temp).

        hoovarmin - I agree that the Maillard reaction adds flavor, BUT there is a point of diminishing returns for me. Deep brown is good, but very dark brown approaching black is too far for me. Straight doughs are actually done around 190°, but you can normally safely take them over 200° to brown them. Enriched doughs may not be done until they reach 200° or higher.

        RonB I agree in preferring more of a blonde crust. Being new to this whole thing and knowing nothing about it, I was really surprised to learn that the Malliard reaction was a part of bread baking. The first loaves I left in to get darker and explained to my wife that we were developing flavor. She said "funny, cause it tastes like you burned them." LOL

        The video from the virtual class is now available on youtube:

        There are more videos on their channel. Their English muffin video would be a good place to start.
