Spelt bread not rising

October 4, 2011 - 2:16pm -- mama4homeschooling

HELP!!  I have stopped making white bread for our family and gone to making spelt bread.  Unfortunately, I cannot get my spelt bread to rise.  I know it is only asthetics, but I miss my nice domed loaves of bread.  I have gone to using carbonated water, adding whey protein, Vitamin C, fruit pectin, & guar gum and grinding the spelt berries right before use.  Much to all my efforts, I still have sunken bread.  I feel like a failure in the kitchen. Does anyone have knowledge in this areana?
