    Just put a loaf on tonight and it has risen to be HUGE! I used the normal recipe and did it as I normally did.

    Do I leave it or not, it has just started cooking it

    The longer you leave your bread to rise, the lighter the bread. Bake it with a bit of water in the bottom in the oven and you get a soft crust also

    It sounds like you might have mis measured something. Keep an eye on it. The heat should kill the yeast and stop the rise,

    It might not bake properly. Test it... you may have to knock it out and finish it in the oven

    "Fresher" yeast will cause bread to rise more than the stuff at the bottom of the tin. So much so, that the bread can collapse (when it runs out of sugar?) You might just have to tweak sugar/yeast ratios.

    Graham: 1, Hovis, Kingsmeal: 0

    Used my new breadmaker last night and despite putting only half the required water in to start with, turned out brilliant and so very very tasty.

    I reckon costs about 30p per loaf in materials, probably about 20p max in 'lecy. But you know what tastes bloody brilliant!

    Just been to the local mill and have purchased a big 6kg bag of Wholemeal flour. Yes, there is a mill about 2 miles up the road from me. I have put enough ingredients for a loaf with the new flour in now and we shall see it in about 3hr 40
