How to make whole grain bread from freshly milled flour
For this recipe, you will need
4 cups of freshly milled flour.
1 ½ cups of milk
¼ of oil (I like grapeseed oil)
1 Tablespoon of honey
2 teaspoons of salt
2 tablespoons of soy lecithin powder
And 1 tablespoon of yeast.
Warm the milk to 105 to 110 degrees. Then add the honey. Pour into a heat safe container, add yeast and let sit 10-20 minutes until the yeast bubbles up about an inch. Pour this mixture into your mixer. 
Add the oil, lecithin, and two cups of flour. Mix until flour is moist. Then add the salt, do not add salt prior to this as salt kills yeast. Add the remaining flour and knead until dough is elastic--About 5 minutes.
Next, place the dough in a warm place and let rise, until doubled. Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
To form well shaped loaves, first roll out the dough and then roll dough into a loaf shape. This recipe will 
make 3 small loaves, or 1 large loaf. Again, place the dough in a warm place and let rise until doubled. 
Carefully place pan into warm oven and cook for 25-30 minutes. Place baked loaf in pan on cooling rack 
for 5 minutes. Then remove from pan and cool more. Or serve warm.
