Saltgrass Steakhouse Shiner Bock Beer Bread1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups Shiner Bock Beer (flat)2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour2 teaspoons dry active yeast1/4 cup warm water ( not hot )1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 cup honey1/4 cup vegetable oil1 1/2 cups all-purpose flourDissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl. Add honey and stir. Mix in wheat flour, salt and all- purpose flour in bowl. Stir in oil and slowly add flat beer. Mix all ingredients together. Place dough on a floured surface and knead for at least 10 to 15 minutes. The dough may need a little more flour added to it if becomes too sticky. The finished dough will feel smooth and spongy and will not stick to your hands.Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic until it doubles in size. Do not place dough in a draft or in an overheated area. The dough should be left to rise at room temperature.When dough has doubled, punch down in the middle and let rest for 5 minutes.Divide dough into four equal parts and shape into round loaves. Place loaves on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Score twice on top of each loaf with a knife two inches apart and about 2 1/2 inches long. Cover loosely with plastic wrap until the loaves have doubled in size. Place in a preheated 350 degree F oven, and bake for about 30 minutes.Yields 6 servings.
