crust tooooo crunchy
today i made my first whole wheat flour bread(with little all purpose flour) using the preferment method. The loaf rose beautifully and before final bake I glased it with water and also sprayed water for the initial 10 minutes of baking. The inside was good soft and nice the crumb good for a first bake. But the problem is that i got a very thin n crunchy crust. How can I get a soft crust. Should I do away with water spraying ?
