Looks great. The crust can get a bit tough, a good bread knife makes it easier. Nothing wrong with the butter method though.

Nice ! Next loaf…take a sharp knife and make a slash at a 45 degree ,right down the center. That gives the loaf the expansion it needs.

I slash a turkey track in my loaves. I'll take a picture tomorrow when I bake the next one.

I am in WI and my loaves are dense. I have had a few that aren't, just by chance. I think dough moisture, proof time and proof temperature all factor in.

Upland, I slash mine a half to three quarters of an inch deep.

Here is a loaf ready to go in the oven. This one didn't rise as much as most I make, temp was a bit low i think. Before and after slashing. I slash the full depth of the blade in the 2nd pic. [Linked Image]

Dense = needs more water. You need 70% Hydration for your flour. .Example … you have 500 grams of flour..you need 350 grams of water.

Slash Is like noted above…3/4 inch deep…don’t be scared to slice it good !

Here it is, out of the oven. This loaf went more up than out. I am sure it will taste fine.

Looks good Snow. Got 2 to put in the oven today. They aren't looking real promising as far as raising.
