The combination of steel cut oats and wheat germ in this bread is awesome, definitely a great texture (if a little dry - I would add a tablespoon of oil or melted butter next time to see if that helped). Only problem I had was getting a decent crust on the loaf... the other recipes I've used for soda breads like this baked them freeform at 375F or so, not in a loaf pan. Will be playing with this though!
