2 c hot water
2 Tbsp yeast
1 teas sugar
1/4 c wheat germ
1/4 c ground flaxseed
3 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
1/4 c sugar
1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses

2 c white flour
1 c + 2.5 c whole wheat flour

Pour dough on a large board for kneading (or right on the table) and knead in another 2.5 c whole wheat flour, adding 1/2 c at a time. Knead for about 10 mins until dough is solid, flexible, and smooth (not sticky).
Grease a large bowl and put the dough in to rise for 1 hour, covered with a wet towel.
Punch down and form into 2 loaves. Place the shaped loaves into greased pans and let rise another 45 mins. Bake at 350 for ~40 mins.
