*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #74* -- and for St. Paddy's Day, too ! I am not a bread baker, but have made other beer breads. There was just NO flavor -- I checked with mersaydees about ingredients, and recipe was accurate. The dough was a nice consistency (after adding a little flour to smooth), and the bread baked up nicely, with a good "thunk". I had used a stout beer, and couldn't even taste that ! Perhaps using salted butter and/or a little sugar, might bring out some flavor. Other beer breads I have made, used bread flour -- and had a more coarse finish. Sorry, mersaydees -- it was quick and easy to make up.
