Number of Servings: 16


    2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 tablespoons butter (melted)
    1 (12 ounce) beer (lukewarm)
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    2 teaspoons salt


1. Mix the yeast, sugar and butter into the beer and let it sit until the yeast has dissolved, about 10 minutes.
2. Mix the flours and salt.
3. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they form a dough.
4. Dump the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes, adding more floor if it is too sticky to work with.
5. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, cover and let it rise until it has doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
6. Punch the dough down, dump onto a floured surface, lightly knead for a minute and let rest for a few minutes.
7. Form the dough into the shape that you want it, place it on a sheet of parchment paper, cover it and let it rise until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours. When forming the dough into the shape that you want it, fold the a bit of the sides under the dough in order to stretch the surface a little.
8. Transfer the loaf on the parchment paper onto a baking sheet, slash the top of the dough a few times and dust with flour.
9. Place in a preheated 450F oven and bake until the crust is golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.
10. Let cool at least 15 minutes.
