  • Summary

    I found that Bob's Red Mill whole wheat flour lends a very dense and tough loaf so I don't recommend using that brand of flour. King Arthur whole wheat flour or freshly milled flour is a good choice for this bread. Also, it's very important to make sure your yeast hasn't expired.

    Ingredients

    • 1/3 cup unsalted butter (optional)
    • 2 1/2 cups warm water (not above 120°F)
    • 7 cups [white whole wheat flour]https://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/king-arthur-white-whole-wheat-flour-5-lb] (made from white wheat berries as opposed to red), freshly ground preferred, divided
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons active-dry yeast (make sure to check the date on the yeast!)
    • 1 Tablespoon Celtic sea salt
