Wet Dough

Mr. Britt, thank you for your message. These "no knead" doughs are inherently very loose and sticky. If it is excessively wet, that can be remedied by adding additional flour a few tablespoons at a time. However, you want the dough to be somewhat sticky--as noted in the recipe instructions. It can take a few tries to perfect the process. The one thing about the bread ingredients is that they cost very little proportionately. Continue to experiment; and comment again if you are still experiencing issues. Also, make sure you are using "instant yeast" instead of "active yeast" in the recipe. One final tip: although you can use all-purpose flour in this recipe, try using bread flour (higher in gluten) instead. I hope this helps.
