“I found this online recently, but don't remember where, so the credit for this simple,lovely textured, and delicious bread goes to someone else. It was my husbands first attempt at breadmaking (of any kind) and it turned out so fabulous!It's a simple basic bread that smells and tastes delightful. We served it with a homemade Garlic butter spread. My husband set the opened beer out the night before to go flat.Time is approximate.”
