sourdough disaster

So I've tried homemade sourdough bread twice now. I have the starter. I found a good recipe online. I think I kneaded it correctly (I've not done a lot of bread, and I wasn't using a bread machine). I baked it as directed, until the crust thumped. But the inside was still moist and dense. Is it because I used wole wheat flour instead of bread flour? Anyone have bread recipes with whole wheat flour?

Re: sourdough disaster

I bake sourdough bread (with my own starter). I am still working on the kneading. I can't get the loaves I knead to come out soft. So in the mean time I use the bread machine or the almost no knead method (loaf and rustic) on breadtopia.com. The almost no knead or no knead method rocks!! I have done all wheat before with no prob. They don't rise as much as white. There are lots of tips and stuff on the site.

Re: sourdough disaster

breadtopia.com, I tried it and it didn't work for me. I seem to be quite a dolt at bread-making. But everyone else seems to love it! Guess it's just me ...
