Be sure to test the yeast before you begin, making sure it foams as specified by the recipe. If it doesn't, throw it out and start again.

It was nice looking, lovely texture, absolutely no flavor. None. Or perhaps that of a nutritional biscuit for a zoo animal.
The basic recipe is very good, except for the salt. I feel that 2 tablespoons salt is FAR too much for 2 loaves. I checked another major cookbook website and an old cookbook of my own, and found that a standard 2 loaf wheat bread recipe calls for 3 tsp (= 1 T) salt, not 2 T. In any event, I'll make this bread again, but with only 1 tablespoon salt for 2 loaves.
It came out really good! I will defiantly make this again!
