Using flours other than wheat.
I'm new to baking bread, I do have a bread machine but I can't really use it because I am trying to make breads with flours other than wheat. I add gluten flour but have had limited success. The flours I am trying to use are barley, oat and lowfat soy, and sometimes I add potato starch. I can't really seem to get the right combination of gluten flour to the other flour. And my breads turn out dense and don't rise. Lately I have been trying the no knead method to give the gluten time to form. But I am not getting the open crumb and oven spring that I should be getting. Has anyone experimented with other flours and had any success. I can't eat wheat but would really like to be able to make bread with other flours.
