Not sure if this is where to post but help please.
First post. I'm just a student trying to get better at bread making. I understand the concept and process, but cant seem to execute. I have yet to master basic yeast flour water salt bread.
I do a 65% hydration dough. Throw it all together and knead til windowpane. I've done it in the mixer and by hand with the same result. I let it rise til doubled, shape, then let it double again. I think my fault is in the shaping. My crust comes out shaggy, uneven and ugly.
As you can see the crust is thin and sad. The loaf has no spring. This makes me sad :c
