Hi, sorry if my english is bad, I live in Caracas Venezuela and I speak and write a little english.

Well, I had made a Peter Reinhart´s Ezekiel bread many times and it did go well, by now I´m having problems during the second rise, my bread tearing befor I´m baking and I don´t know wy. I use the same formula that I used in the past but I´m not have the same result. Please help me.

I had the same problem. Reducing my first ferment time from 4 to 2.5 hours solved the problem.
