Made correctly this bread is soft, fluffy, and delicious!!! I don't know if this will help anyone, but I too had problems with my bread coming out dense. I think I've pin pointed a few thing that might be contributing to this. The first few times I made this I paid extra attention to the yeast due to the reviews. Then I got into a hurry once and made a few errors. The result being dense and not so great bread. I put together a few tips since then to prevent this problem. 1. Having your water too hot can kill your yeast, it really does only need to be warm! 2. Use a smaller bowl for your dough to set in. The dough uses the sides of the bowl to 'cling' to as it rises. Too large of a bowl can cause your dough to sink into itself. 3. Really watch your flour and salt! Salt will hinder the growth of the yeast, you'll notice a distinct decline in the height of your dough if you use too much salt. The recommended amount in the recipe should be followed closely. Following these tips alone I've not had to start weighting my flour out. If you continue having issues after making these changes I would recommend doing that as well!
