Top Review by sprue

this bread is very dense and full of fiber and thats great. it was a lot more crumbly than i was hoping, hard to make a sandwich out of but nice toasted with cheese. i think the warm damp towel stopped it from rising very well as it got cold quickly? i made it into a loaf so i could make sandwiches and although i greased the pan it really stuck tight. so i ended up with a squatty dense crumbly brick of fiber. i tried to retard it in the fridge overnight and that may have been my problem.. but i do love red river.. thanks.
