I would like larger loaves

I just made  two loaves of 100% whole wheat bread from Peter Reinharts book "The Bread Bakers Apprentice. I'm very happy with the way they turned out except I would like larger loaves for sandwiches. I baked them in a 8-1/2 x 4-1/2" pans. I live at elevation 6700 ft if that matters.

How do I make the recipe larger for a 9x5 pans or 10x 5 pan?

Thanks in Advance.

Jon

You need to learn baker's math. Then you will be able to make any amount of dough you desire for any recipe.

Just click on "Handbook" tab at the top of any page here, click "bread basics", then "baker's math" to be on your way.

Good luck.
