Whole Wheat Bread

adapted slightly from melskitchencafe

1 or 2 c. cracked 9 grain cereal (I added this)
12+ c. whole wheat flour
2 T Saf yeast
1/2 c. vital wheat gluten
1000 mg vit. C crushed
6 1/2 c. warm water
2/3 c. oil (I've reduced this to 1/3-1/2)
2/3 c. honey (I've reduced this too)
2 T salt

Mix 9 grain cereal with 4 c. wheat flour, water, yeast, vit. C.  Mix well.  Add oil and honey and mix again.  Let sit for 10-15 min to sponge.  Add the salt and mix in the rest of the flour until it pulls away from the side of bowl.  Knead for 7 minutes.  It will be sticky-ish.  Form 5 loaves (about 1 lb 10 oz each).  Spray the counter before you roll it out.  Don't roll it up too tight or it will blow out the side while baking.  Let rise until an inch above the pan.  Put in cold oven and set temp to 350 and bake for 33 minutes.  (or let rise 2 inches above and put in pre-heated oven for 26-ish minutes.)
