Whole wheat bread recipe

By request, here is my whole wheat bread recipe - it could not be easier.

I'll give the basic dough recipe. You can make this in your bread machine and finish in the oven, or mix up your dough manually.

3 cups whole wheat flour
1.5t salt
2T butter
2t yeast
3T powdered milk
1 c water plus between .3-.5 cup extra (judge this for yourself - if it's a hot day, add a little less. If it's a cold day, add a bit more -- more water will help it rise a bit and yield a less dense loaf.)

Do a first rise, knead and second rise, and then finish in oven for 20 minutes on 400.

Good luck. I make this every 3 days or so. It's a beautiful thing.
