I made sour dough bread. The flavor is wonderful, but they are extremely heavy. It was cool in my house yesterday so it didn't rise appropriately. Other than blaming weather, any ideas what could have gone wrong? Or maybe some easy bread recipes? I love home made bread!

I have my bread raise in the oven. While I'm kneading, I turn the oven on to "warm" and then immediately turn it off. It provides an even, warm place for the dough to raise without drafts.

Sometimes if the water is too hot it will kill the yeast

No yeast, I started with a sour dough starter, but my water may have been too warm.

 It sounds like it wasn't warm enough to rise properly. I turn my dishwasher on to rinse while I'm kneading the dough. Then make sure it's turned off. Put bread inside, warm and moist air helps it rise.

I suck at making dough. I throw everything in my bread machine and it comes out perfect. When i try myself, i have the same issues as you.

From my experience, sour dough bread is a little more dense.

 The only thing I can think of is to watch how long you are blending the ingredients. And when you are adding them. Add them according to the directions. Don't change the order of when you add them. That can actually affect final product. 

the weather. If you need to and it's chill in the house again. Turn on the oven to like 200 or 250 and set the bowl on top of the stove but not directly on top of the burner where the steam and heat come up from the oven. That should be warm enough to get it to raise properly for you.
