Sprouted Grain Bread

Since the sprouted grain flour is more like whole wheat flour (make sure you watch that video here: https://youtu.be/IVtglUXS4Gs), that’s the recipe I ended up using. I tried one written for all purposed flour and it did not work at all! This video is almost the entire process, including hand kneading, but in the description I included a link so you can fast forward past my kneading (and rambling).

Basic Whole Wheat Bread
from NutriMill

Small Batch (2 loaves)

2 cups warm water
1/4 cup oil (vegetable or olive or whatever)
1/4 cup honey
2 t. salt
2 t. dough enhancer (optional and did not use)
2 t. vital wheat gluten (did not use)
5-6 cups whole wheat flour – milled medium
1 T. SAF instant yeast

Large Batch (6 loaves)

6 cups warm water
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
2 T. salt
2 T. dough enhancer (optional)
2 T. vital wheat gluten
14 – 18 cups whole wheat flour – milled medium
2 T. SAF instant yeast

By hand instructions:

In a large bowl, add the first 6 ingredients, about half of the flour, and the yeast. Mix for about one minute.

Optional step (I did this): for enhanced flavor and texture, allow the batter to sit for 15-30 minutes until it becomes bubbly.

Mix in the rest of the flour, a little at a time (about 1/2 cup at a time) until the dough pulls away from the sides and bottom of the bowl. You may not need all of the flour. On a lightly floured surface, place the dough and begin kneading in the rest of the flour until the dough is smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into equal portions. Shape into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour). Bake at 350 degrees F 30-40 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 190 degrees F).

Mixer instructions:

In BOSCH mixing bowl with dough hook and dough hook extender in place, add forst 6 ingredients, about half of the flour, and the yeast. Mix on speed 3 for about one minute.

Optional step (I did this): for enhanced flavor and texture, allow the batter to sit for 15-30 minutes until it becomes bubbly.

Increase to speed 2. Continue adding remaining flour, a little at a time, until dough pulls away from the sides and bottom of the bowl. You may no need all of the flour. Knead on speed 2 for 6-8 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Lightly oil your hands and counter. Divide the dough into equal portions. Shape into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour). Bake at 350 degrees F 30-40 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 190 degrees F).
