Wheat Bread

3 Cups warm water
2 pkg dry yeast
1/3 C honey
5 C Bread Flour
3 T butter melted
1/3 C honey
1 T salt
3 1/2 C whole wheat flour
2 T butter melted
In a large bowl mix water, yeast, honey. Add 5 cups bread flour, stir and combine. Let sit for 30 minutes or until big and bubbly.
Mix in 3 T melter butter and 1/3 cup honey. Stir in 2 C wheat flour. On a flat surface kneed in enough flour until it is still a little sticky but pulls away from the surface, this can take from 2-4 cups more flour.
Place in a grease bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a dish towel in a warm place until double.
Punch down and divide into three sections. Place in a greased 9x5" pan. Allow to double until the dough is 1" above the rim of the pan.
Bake at 250 for 30 minutes, do not over bake. Brush lightly with butter, remove from pan and cool.
