      This really is a hearty bread. The recipe makes a HUGE loaf of bread. I mixed and did the first rise in my bread machine, and it kind of overflowed. I kind of suspected it might, with 8 cups of flour, but I was expecting the bread to be a little more dense, so I miscalculated a little, the bread baked up nicely, and we enjoyed it. Thanks for a lovely recipe.
