Beer Bread

I'm starting to experiment with Beer breads. 


This was the first Bread that I made:


100% Whole Wheat Beer Bread:


 


1 1/4 cups Dark BrouCzeck Beer


3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil


3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar


2 Teaspoons of Sea Salt


4 Cups of 100% Whole Wheat Frour


1 1/3 Packets of Red Star Active Dry Yeast


 


I produced a decent Dark Brown Bread with a slightly musky flavor.  The inside is very moist.


It didn't rise as much as I wanted but did form a Bread shape.


 


 


I am now making a second Beer Bread:


 


Whole Wheat Chestnut Bread:


 


1 1/4 cups Dark BrouCzeck Beer


3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil


6 chopped Roasted Chestnuts


3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar


2 Teaspoons of Sea Salt


2 1/2 Cups of All Purpose (non bleached) Flour


1 2/2 cups of 100% Whole Wheat Flour


1 1/3 Packets of Red Star Active Dry Yeast


 


I'll post again later or tomorrow to let you know how it came out.


It is rising a lot more than the 100% Whole Wheat Bread.  It is going to be a big Bread.  I am hoping that the Chestnut Flavor will complement the Beer.

The first Bread was much better with a heartier flavor.


 


The second Bread had very little taste.
