Memo's brown bread

Zolablue,  I just mixed and have risen your bread, but it took a lot more flour than you gave in the recipe.  I mixed it in my KitchenAid.  I added a least 1 1/2 cups more, didn't measure, just added more til I got a handling consistancy.  It has risen  beautifully and is now rising again in the pans.  I weighed the entire dough and it weighs more than 4 lbs.  Do you find that you have to add more when you knead it?  What size pans do you use?  I am very anxious to try it.  It looks great so far.  I have been baking my own bread for a long time so feel I know how it should look and feel.  Thanks for any more info.  Ruth
