    The temperature (105° F. – 115° F.) of the liquid is critical, if it is too hot it can kill the yeast. It's really difficult to ruin bread if the yeast is fresh. Always test the yeast before making the recipe.
    For a shiny crust, combine 1 slightly beaten egg with 1 T. water and brush over loaves before baking.
