Bread baking tips:

When bread browns too fast, cover with a piece of brown paper.

Yeast bread that is too porous: This is caused by over-rising, or
baking at too low a temperature.

The crust is dark and blisters: This is caused by under-rising. The
bread will blister under the crust.

The bread doe does not rise: This can be caused by over kneading, or
from using old yeast, or killing the yeast by using water that is too

If the bread is "crumbly", it may need a bit more kneading.
