This is in response to a discussion on the boards, because the ingredient of the month is "beer". I haven't tried it yet, myself, but it does sound good. I think 1 cup Rye flour could also be substituted for 1 cup of the bread flour. Hope you enjoy it and would really appreciate hearing how it turns out if you decide to make it. Thanks. This could also be made using traditional bread making methods. Makes one 1 1/2 lb loaf.
