He said, for two loaves:
-Four cups flour, tablespoon salt, tablespoon of dry yeast, add yeast water and enough additional water to flour in bowl to make a dough that comes away from sides of bowl.
-Two hours for first rise and one to one and one half hours for final rise.
-Preheated 350 to 375 oven for about 35 minutes.
It appears that his second rise may have been too long and that it prevented a good oven spring, as indicated by the flat bottoms of the loaves and slashes that did not fill out very well.
