Just finished making Peter Reinhart's whole wheat bread. I found it a bit bland and boring so I rescued it!! Check it out! http://saltandserenity.com/2010/06/13/41-whole-wheat-bread-gets-rescued/
Nice rescue. Wholewheat breads can be exciting and exceptionally delicious. I recommend you try PEter Reinhart's Wholegrain breads, where he uses a soaker and a biga, the soaker being half of the dough left at room temperature for upto 24 hrs, and then combined with the biga (pre-ferment) and baked.
You could also exponentially enhance wholgrain breads by milling your own wheats fresh.
I am going to give the wholegrain bread a try. I do love wholegrain breads also. I never thought about milling my own. Could be fun.
