100% Rye Sourdough not rising much
I did it once. Haven't done it since. I'm using Lepard's recipe and it worked a charm once (same flour, same levain), but hasn't worked since. I am so disappointed. I even had my oven's thermostat re-calibrated (by a professional--it's a free service). This is the third time. I am concerned that the bread crusts over before I put it in the oven. I spray it well before putting it in, and again after five minutes, but it looks like there's hardly any oven spring! And what spring there is, is from the bottom, so there is a ridge all along the bottom of the loaf.
