My bread does not look white inside?

Hello,

I'm making breads from artisan bread in 5 minutes a day but my bread does not look white inside. It comes out a little moist but the crust is perfect crackling. I'm using KA flour, I have a oven thermometer and I also use a baking stone when I make bread. When the bread is formed and rising I turn the oven on 20 minutes before it finishes like it says in the book.

If the interior of your loaves look a little glassy, try baking in a preheated oven (30 minutes of preheating) at 375F for 45 minutes.

You should use a meat thermometer to check the interior temp of the bread.

It should be 200-210.

I notice that sometimes my 5 minutes a day bread looks a little greyish when baked. Not always, but sometimes. It still tastes great, so I mostly just ignore it.

That's what it kinda looks like inside type greyish.

I'll make another loaf later today and I'll preheat the oven a longer time and also check the temp.
