Does anyone have a problem with their bread crust being very hard. I checked my oven calibration for temperature setting so that is not the problem. I use the no knead recipes with a sour dough starter from Breadtopia. I have baked a lot of bread using these methods for 3 or 4 years and this very hard crust (hard to chew) has always been a problem. Is this just what happens for this method of baking with the closed baking containers? Does anyone have any ideas?
