    This was my 1st successful sourdough bread and its delish! (eating it right now). The only recommendation i have is to adjust the temperature to 375. It came out a little dark, but still amazing!

    Thanks for the recipe, but just want to add I use virgin coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil. Polyunsaturate oils, (i.e. vegetable, canola, soy, safflower, sunflower, etc) have always been marketed as "healthy" but are in fact linked to cancer because they're processed through a solvent bath (Hexane) and then deodorizers to mask the rancidity (free radicals). Needless to say, that kind of ruins a good recipe such as this.

    This is one of the best bread recipe's I have tried. It was very light and fluffy and tasty. I would bake it longer next time and turn the loaves so they brown on all sides. I could not get the crust crispy despite spraying with mister.
