Hallo Schnuffel15
vielleicht solltest Du den Zopf nach dem Formen noch 30-45 Minuten gehen lassen, dann würde es ihn nicht so zerreissen beim Backen.
Probier doch mal meine Machart. Mein Rezept ist auch ein Bisschen anders.

yeeah that is good..i think i took about 200°C..also you can tap on the bottom of the zopf and if it sounds hollow it should be done...

Step 12 could do with a few more details, specifically two: temperature and time. I know it will depend on your oven etc. but a rough indication would be great. If you can provide this I will have to start making these- my student house got through two 800g challot every week just through nibbling. Probably stopped me from starving away in exam time...
