3 pkgs.(1/4 oz.each) active dry yeast
5 cups warm water(110 degree to 115 degree), divided
1 tbsp plus 2/3 cup honey, divided
2/3 cup canola oil
11/2 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup toasted wheat germ
6 to 8 cups bread flour
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 3/4 cup warm water and 1 tbsp honey. Add the remaining water and honey, the oil, sugar, salt, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, and 3 cups bread flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining bread flour to form a soft dough(dough will be sticky)
turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Shape into 4 loaves. Placein 9-in x 3-in loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
