Sprouted Bread Tips: Sprouted bread rises faster than
unsprouted, so watch it closely -- it falls royally, if allowed
too much rise. Since practically no honey is sued in this recipe,
the bread will not be golden brown when it is done.

I talked with you last week regarding this recipe and how to
sprout and dry this much grain...well I did it. I put the grain
on 3 big cookie sheets and covered with a damp cloth and put them
in the oven with the oven light on. It took 24 hours to dry, but
it did just fine, and then I milled the flour and made the recipe.
The bread turned out great!>>>
