Wonky sourdough

Wonky sourdough

made some sourdough this morning.  Three things I don’t like about this are below.  Any other comments/suggestions/critics?

1) obviously the shape, I assume it’s because of poor/inconsistent scoring

2) I don’t like the color, I very lightly spritzed with water, might try using more next time.

3) the bottom is very pale, going to try a lower rack so it’s closer to the heat.

1. Score deeper.

2. Bake longer, bake hotter.

3. Same as 2.

just keep making loaves, over and over.  After about a thousand loaves it get's pretty easy, so I'm told,

I think it looks real good, just keep doing what you're doing.
