by Emily Jane Chapman Hubbard on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 10:28am
3 packages yeast (I used 3 T of bread machine yeast)
(1/2 cup warm water)
5 c. warm water
2/3 c oil
2/3 c honey
2 T salt
7 c whole wheat flour
6 c whole wheat flour

combine the yeast and the half cup warm water

combine the 5 cups of water with the oil, honey and salt

add 7 cups of flour; mix with mixer

change to dough hook

add 2.5 cups of flour and yeast mixture

add rest of flour slowly (as needed)

knead for 5-7 minutes on "2"

grease bread pans (this makes 4-6 loaves)

oil hands and counter

shape loaves, put into pans

let rise not more than 1/3 in bulk

back at 350 degrees for 40 minutes

note: original recipe also uses some soy flour but i've never done that, and it assumes you have a stand mixer.
