Love the Dutch oven method of baking bread, however, crust is too brown almost burned.  How can this be corrected?  Oven temp has recently been calibrated.

Try putting an insulated cookie sheet underneath to shield the bottom if that is too much try a regular cookie sheet

Great tips here -  I ususally use Semolina but will try oats. I don’t pre-heat the dutch oven - put the bread in to it cold and then in the hot oven and that works for me.
