Inspired by the Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day method, we wanted to find a recipe that was 100% whole wheat flour that made a beautiful artisan loaf. We think we've figured it out! It tastes great too and is very simple to make. The best part is that you can always have dough on hand for some freshly baked bread.

7 c Joseph's Grainery Hard Red Whole Wheat Stone Ground Bread Flour
1 1/2 Tbs granulated yeast
1 Tbs salt
3 1/2 c luke warm water
1/2 c olive oil
In the bowl of your mixer with your bread hook attachment, mix all the ingredients until well combined and all the flour is incorporated into the dough. Move the dough to a 1.5 gallon rubbermaid/tupperware-type food storage container and let rise on the counter for 2 hours. Then place in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake a loaf/boule.
When you're ready to bake some bread, get the dough out of the fridge and pull of 1/4 to 1/3 of the dough. Form your dough into a boule shape and place on your baking stone, which has been prepared with a skiff of corn meal. Allow the dough to rise for at least 1.5 hours. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Slice a few lines in the top of the dough. Bake at 450 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or until the bread is a beautiful deep golden brown.
The dough can keep in the container, in the fridge for up to a week.
