Please help trouble shoot my whole wheat sourdough sandwich loaf.
Why is my sandwich loaf splitting?: I followed the one stage sourdough recipe I found on this site. I used freshly ground whole wheat only. I also followed JMonkey's shaping video. Well I probably made some errors since I don't know yet why and how the loaf is optimized. SO what happened? Why did it split so much?
Also why could i only slice it quite thick? Could it have been too freshly out of the oven?
Here is a picture of the slice;
