News to me - there is a thing called "bread flour". Turns out that it absorbs more water and makes a better, taller loaf than regular flour. The increased gluten in bread flour makes for a bread that holds together and is less crumbly. Bought a $5 set of plastic storage units at Wallymart - wanted something square-ish and a certain height to maximize room in our frig. The bread dough can be kept for days in the frig, getting better with time, until you want to use it. - also easier to work with cold. Learned about "cloaking", which is bringing the edges of the dough around to the bottom to leave a smooth upper surface. Found that you can make any size loaf you want - Last time I took 1/2 the dough and pressed it onto a plate with shredded cheese, then folded the dough over the cheese for the final rise - the other 1/2 I added a handful of walnut chunks - they slice just fine with a bread knife. Summer reached Oregon, so I tried baking in the barbecue - turned out ok, but this guy's method is better:
