I suggest that you add 2 tablespoons of gluten.  Gluten will take care
of the problem during times when atmospheric pressure is unfavorable
for rising.  I often use gluten in recipes that do not have bread flour
as the primary ingredient.  You might experiment to see how much you need.
BTW, I used to mail order gluten from the DAK catalog, but now that DAK
is having its financial difficulties, I haven't received a catalog in a
long time, so I'm not sure if it's still available from that source.

Good luck!
