do this but double the salt and make 33% or 66% of the flour whole grain.

Baking is organic chemistry.

You have to weigh everything to the gram or it will be different each time you bake something.

Thanks, will give it a go

I do. It's either that I've followed recipes that are not well thought or my oven is failling.

Baking is horribly fickle.

Flour will actually take water in from the humidity of the Air and change its weight.

A baker has to develop a feel to over come these slight changes.

Merely the temp of your kitchen and the conditions of rain or dryness can change the outcome, A skilled baker takes all that into account.

Even after months in a breathable bag in a room with 100% humidity the amount of water flour absorbs is not enough to alter the outcome of a recipe at the scale people bake at home.

cooks illustrated has a great one, but it's fairly complicated.

This desu OP. The alignment of the planets wasn't exactly right, so your bread came out shit.

I'm assuming you mean bread with only whole wheat flour? That's just silly. Do half whole wheat half white and it will turn out fine.

But If I was going to do 100% whole wheat, I'd let it ferment with a starter at 100% hydration overnight, then add some flour to get it down to a proper hydration, and then knead it in the bread-machine, then let it rise in the bread pan for several hours brushed with oil and covered in plastic wrap.

How come?

Whole grain bread is pretty damn vague, OP. If it rose okay, it probably isn't that it was too dry, so I'd consider either adding vital gluten to the recipe to give it a stronger structure, and/or replacing a bit of one of the other flours with bread flour for the same reason.

It's unnecessary, borderline masochistic. Half and half will make a better loaf every time. It will be chewier and just better, and still have plenty of fiber and nutrients from the whole wheat flour.

King Arthur recipe is foolproof. also look into white whole wheat flour that shit is amazing

I got a recipe for a hearty whole wheat quick bread. But I'll warn you, this shit eats like a meal. Pic is a bit blurry, but I think you can make it out.

Fucking amateurs...

Maybe you are right, thanks for the advice anyway

>>7138035
Thanks, a lot of recipes in their website.

>>7138109
Thanks for taking the time anon, really appreciate it

I dig whole grain breads. There's a local flour mill not far away that stocks a pretty wide variety, and I enjoy mixing and matching when I bake.
