Place the first five ingredients in the bowl and mix.
Add 2 Cups 100% Whole Grain Wheat Flour. Then add 2 tablespoons of Dry Active Yeast. (If you're not sure about your yeast proof it in a little warm water first - see notes).
next, add 4 Cups of 100% Whole Grain Wheat Flour.
Mix until the consistency is somewhat even. Then continue to slowly add flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough quits sticking to the sides of the bowl. It should be tacky to the touch. The trick is to have enough consistency to stand up with the least amount of flour so the bread will be fluffy. In any case, do not exceed 7 1/2 cups of wheat flour. Don't over mix or the bread will be tough.
When your dough is finished, Cover the bowl and let it rise for about 30-45 minutes. The dough will be larger but it doesn't need to double when using a heavy mixer.
Grease two bread pans with Crisco. You can also flour the pans to reduce sticking.
Mix again just enough to knock it down at least close to the original size.
Drop the dough on a floured surface so you can work the dough and shape it. Roll it in the flour and shape it in your hands to make a nice ball getting enough flour on it so it isn't sticky. Divide the ball in half and do it again. Shape the loaves by turning the dough under its self over and over. When the dough is shaped right the sides and ends will be sealed and all you will see is a nice oblong shaped loaf with smooth sides and top. Drop the loaves in your bread pans and let them rise until almost doubled. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 36 minutes. If you forgot to preheat 41 minutes. (gas oven)
When done turn the bread out of the pan to a rack to cool. You can eat it right away (a great time for real butter).
If you are not sure if your yeast is still good, you will want to "proof" it. Dissolve one package and 1 teaspoon of sugar in 1/4 cup of warm water. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. If the mixture foams up, the yeast mixture is good to use. But if it does not foam, you won't want to use it.
Make sure the bread is completely cooled before wrapping it. You don't want it to get soggy.
Keep out of the refrigerator - putting it in there will only make it hard.
