My da (hi da!) has pointed out that the reason our First Conchas Attempt didn't work out so well might have been because :

...the yeast didn't get fed enough or long enough & the paste was overworked.  This is usually the reason for hard bread etc.  

Well, that's interesting.  We've managed to improve our conchas quite a bit, but the actual reason has always been something of a hit & miss mystery.  I'm going to make 'em again in a few weeks, I'll bear dad's advice in mind when I do.
