My sister Ruth is the breadmaker in the family, but I wanted to attempt this myself. I haven't made bread since Jr. High where we totally messed up. The bread was like a brick and smelled of beer. I never tried since, until now. Ruth gave me lots of tips, but I still called her panicking. "After you divide it in two, do you put it in separate bowls or back in the same (one) bowl?" I worked up a sweat kneading the dough. Ruth, you can still be the breadmaker! Yours is much better, but I don't think I did a half bad job. And you were right, it is fun to "punch" down the dough. The fourth picture shows the dough "punched." At first I thought, how in the world is this ever going to come out.
