People should make their instructions (a) clearer and (b) linear. If you're doing an instructional video for noobs, don't make a big deal out of the allegedly proper way and then mumble something about never doing that in person.
Share. The method. That actually. WORKS!

So yeah. Instructional video said "use this portion" with way more importance than what the guy who made it actually did. So my dough was too moist and the loaf turned into a roofing tile and though the bread is tasty enough, it's dense and INCREDIBLY chewy and takes a lot of work to get through.
The next round of loaves is going to be interesting because this niblet is running out of flour in the middle of a firkin overbuying panic.
I might have to settle for keeping the sourdough starter alive during the crisis. This is going to SUUUUUCK...
...but I knew that when the panic began.
I can only hope that there is a point in which all the overbuyers realise that they have too firkin much shit and then can't unload it. At that point, I shall probably be able to restock all the actual crap I actually need.
