Perhaps someone has struggled with the problem of flat loaves also. 
When I go to make a round loaf of bread it tends to spread out more 
than rise up. I end up with a loaf 3 inches tall and 10 inches or 
more across. Slightly reducing the liquid hasn't helped any. I have 
noticed that the bakery at our local grocery store makes loaves of 
sourdough that are almost round! Would that I could make these nice 
round loaves.... If anyone has some tips please let me know...
