Definitely Susan's recipe! Doesn't it make great bread? Did you use a Pyrex bowl or the much safer stainless steel? Glad you like it, A.

Used a metal bowl to cover it, I'll have ago with mixture of white wholemeal flour next and see what happens.

Ive just done a recipe using cider and a small amount of water in a similar recipe and also using white, wholemeal and rye for the flours, small amount of  fresh yeast, levain  starter and  salt (salt aded later). Turned out very nice but as usual you can't taste the cider even though it was quite a large quantity. Ive done other recipes using beer and Guinness!. Im begining to agree with  baker called Andrew Whitley that its best to make the bread and drink the beer!
