I took all the advice and tried again last night. It came out really well. I forgot to take pics through the whole process but here are a couple Last Rise: Hot out of the oven: MMMMMM Yummmm!!!!!!! It smelled wonderful baking. I used non-iodized salt this time, greatly affected the rise, it was much better. Also added 1 cup boiling water to a skillet, turned the oven to 25 degrees hotter than baking temp, added water and then bread, shut door then turned oven back to baking temp. After 2 failed attempts this turned out really good.
