Why isn't my sourdough rising ? When i take it out of the oven it looks like a slightly raised flying saucer!
This has happened twice. The crust is also coming away from the dough as it cools. Could it be the starter, or am i over proving my dough?
Any advice/help please.

What you are referring to is poor oven spring:


One or more causes of low oven spring:
  • Weak starter
  • Improper shaping
  • Over proofed dough
  • Improperly scored
  • No moisture in oven chamber

Thanks for replying. it could be 2 of the 5 suggestions you made. Weak starter or over proofed.
I've discarded my starter (i've had it a while) and will start a new one.
thanks again.
