This is a recipe from an old cookbook. I only have a few pages left so I can't say what the cookbook was called or where it came from. I found the pages glued to cardstock in the pages of a binder which belonged to my grandmother. I made this bread for the first time a year ago. It makes a wonderful loaf of bread, tastes like REAL sourdough to me. It has beer in it (the brand with rocky mountain water in it) and it takes a nice flavor from the beer. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do ! I have also posted the starter recipe. ENJOY!!!!!!
