Whole Wheat Bread...

As per my instruction to my wife, ( which is very rare,) please make some bread dough and we will have fresh bread tomorrow morning for breakfast. She bounded out of her chair and made the dough. I know have her recipe and will try it some time myself. It is kind of nice to have some one else to the work though. So the  bread sat all night and this am and fired up the large, indirect to 450 and we used a DO. Preheated that for about 20 minutes. I put the little green feet on the PS and then cooked the bread for 40-45 minutes.

    Sharing is good. Here it is:
    11/2 cup white flour
    11/2 cup multigrain flour
    112 tsp vital wheat gluten
    1/4 tsp quick rise yeast
    2 tsp salt
    11/2 cup + 2 tbs water, room temperature

    In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add water and stir until blended, dough will be shaggy and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 12 hours, 18 hours is preferred at room temperature.
    Dough is ready when its surface is dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface an place the dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on it self once or twice..Cover loosely with plastic wrap and rest for about 15 minutes.
    Using just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface or to your fingers, gently and quickly shape dough into a ball. Generously coast a cotton towel with flour, cornmeal, put dough seam side down on towel and dust with more flour or cornmeal.Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for 2 hours. When it is ready the dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with your finger.
    About 1/2 hour before dough is ready, have the egg up to 450, indirect heat, so PS in legs down, and then I use the little green feet and put the DO on the feet. We use a Dutch Oven with lid. It needs to pre- heat for the 1/2 hour. Now take dough and roll it into the DO, seam side up. Shake the pot a couple of times, be sure to use heavy gloves. The bread will straighten itself out, Cover with lid and bake for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake another 15 minutes or till done. It should just pop out of the DO. Cool it on a rack. 
    There you go, enjoy. Now where is that jam?
