Thank you to everyone (regardless if you directly helped or didn't at all)
Thank you, she says.. why?
After various threads, some I posted and some I just directly read, it seems I have finally successfully made my first real loaf of Sourdough in my clay baker! Hurray!
In other threads I pointed out what I was doing and the results. I was very frustrated and my confidence was completely blown on all types of bread baking. I kept trying new breads and kept shying away from sourdough loaves. I did research, I bought 3 Peter Reinhart books and read up on formulas (Wow, I TOTALLY LOVE these books!)..
I found the source of my problem. My over cooked crust and undercooked crumb was because I was pre soaking my clay baker. Although I read quite a few people soaking, I think that due to the recipe I am using is so wet, that I was essentially giving it too much water. I have to work on my scoring, but I will post a picture soon.
I am but a young grasshopper in the world of bread baking, so this is actually a big deal to me.
