I had to adjust the yeast down to 1/4 teaspoon, to keep it from falling in the middle of the loaf, since I use bread machine yeast. It makes a dense loaf of 100% whole wheat bread, so yes, this recipe does work, but I do believe that truly whole wheat bread is an acquired taste. I can see now why most people usually only use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of regular flour when they make "whole wheat" bread. This 100% whole wheat bread does not taste very good at all. In fact, after I use up my one sack of whole wheat flour I plan on going back to using nothing but regular flour for my bread machine bread from now on. If I'm going to go to all the trouble to make my own bread, I want it to taste yummy.
I gave the recipe 3 stars because once you adjust the yeast to suit your needs, it actually does work. You will get a loaf of 100% whole wheat bread. It's just a shame that it doesn't taste very good. At least not to me. Everyone has different tastes, and some people may love this bread. I had my brother try some and he didn't like it either.
