PS- I do want to clarify that when it came out well the couple times that it dod, it was awesome! Just wish I could get it to consistently work.

Unfortunately, I have tried this recipe exactly as stated many, many times, and only twice has it worked. I thought it was the humidity of Georgia until I moved to Arizona... now I'm wondering if it's the altitude? We are about a mile above sea level, and although I follow every step precisely, my dough simply comes out wet and sticky.... no matter how much flour i add. Any suggestions for maybe the altitude?

Made this bread the other day. Too simple, unfortunately the bread wasn't as flavorful as expected. I Was thinking of experimenting more, even trying a stout to see where the color of the bread ends up.

Hi, just wondering if I can use bread machine yeast in this recipe..its all I happen to have handy, otherwise I shall go buy some regular yeast.

I had watched this video, before I attempted Chef John's pumpkin bread. It was very helpful to know how to blend and what the final results are. The breads are very similar. After trying the pumpkin bread, I plan to try this one to. That one tasted like Panera bread.

The people that say they can't make bread are all just trying to use the yeast they've had around since 1996 and refuse to buy new yeast because "It looks okay to me!"
