You’ll see tips and tricks to make sure your loaf comes out of the oven beautifully golden brown with a crispy crust. Congratulations on baking sourdough bread from scratch!

please help, my loaf basically has a great taste, but doesn't completely rise or cook all the way through. The crust looks pretty, but is really thick. Any suggestions, would be much appreciated.

Chef John, can I use all purpose flour rather than bread flour? I have a lot of ap but don't have bread flour on hand.
