      Title: Bread rising tips
 Categories: Bread maili, Miscellaneo
      Yield: 1 Servings
  The main reasons I found for lack of rise in my bread are, in order of
  1) Ingredients are too cold: warm up the water in the microwave (or by
  whatever    other means) first. Once I did that, the bread started
  rising quite well.
  2) Pre-knead the dough for 15 minutes. This makes a huge difference.
  Just set the machine on the cycle you want and press start. After 15
  minutes, press stop and then restart the cycle from the beginning. If
  you want to make the bread on the timer, then just put all the
  ingredients into the breadpan EXCEPT for 1 cup of flour and the
  yeast. Let the machine knead the stuff in the breadpan for 15 minutes
  and then press stop, and add the last cup of flour, add the yeast on
  top, and set the timer.
  3) Not enough liquids: there, one has to be careful. Not enough
  liquid will prevent the bread from rising well, but too much liquid
  will make it rise well, but then it will collapse. This is especially
  true with Rye bread. Too much liquid will make it so that the insides
  of the bread will spill out when you removed the bread at the end of
  the cycle.
  4) You use gluten, so this might not matter. But just in case, make
  sure your wheat flour is made from hard wheat. You should not have to
  use gluten. For the rye bread, gluten should also not be necessary,
  but if you really like fluffy bread, then add it anyways. From:
