    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.
