      Try these things one at a time. Add more liquid in small amounts making your dough a little less dense.

      Make sure that you include the sugar or honey for the yeast to eat.

      Be sure to grease the dough beforeit rises so that it doesn’t form a skin.

      Let it rise until it has doubles in size. even if it takes twice as long as the recipe recommends.

      Hope that one of these helps.

      Subject: : Getting Bread to rise – need help
      Date: Monday, July 21, 2008, 7:34 AM

      I have been trying to bake my own bread for awhile, and no matter what
      I seem to do I can not seem to get the bread to rise the way it is
      supposed to. I have no idea what is wrong. I use a thermometer to
      make sure that the water is the right temperature. The yeast is
      always fresh (often used the same day I purchase, in fact). I let it
      sit in a warm place that is around 80 or so degrees, but nothing.
      I’ve tried different recipies, etc but still no luck. I’ve never
      actually seen anyone making bread, so I don’t know what it is that I’m
      doing wrong. The bread doesn’t taste bad when I cook it. It’s just a
      bit flat and very dense. It does rise slightly, but nothing like what
      it is supposed to. Any suggestions? ???
