At last on my 4th attempt

Hi everyone, at last on my fourth attempt my bread has come out quite good I think. The taste is just lovely the crust could be a bit better and I wish the wholes were bigger....... I went back to the simple approach and just made a white loaf with a small percentage of rye flour. I am very proud of myself.  I made the (as suggested by mlucas from the wild yeast website) Norwich Sourdough and just halfed the recipe. Instead of fermenting overnight int he fridge I just fermented in a plastic bag for 2.5 hours. The slashing also did not quite turn out the way I would like too but I am still Quite stoked. In regard to the steam I tried to place a pyrex dish over the loaf once it was ready to place in the oven but did not realise that it wasn't big enough, so I just went with spraying the loaf and pouring half a cup of water in the bottom of the oven. The Oven Spring is much better this time, as I also used the Pizza stone, but I do think it could still be better. What do you guys think?

I want to get the crust better and maybe more mouseholes, so maybe a longer ferment next time. I want to thank all of you out there who gave me some great advice

Looking Good,  And I wouldn't be too concerned about big holes. That means you'll have to eat another slice of bread. And then make another loaf of bread because you ate the 1st one.  But then, who cares, you get to bake again.  Happy Baking. M
