Honey whole wheat texture
I am having trouble trying to make my honey whole wheat light and fluffy. I make large quantities of wheat bread(up to 80 loaves a day) and use the sponge and dough method. In the sponge I use water, yeast, honey, and about half of total flour amount. I mill my own whole wheat flour, lately I have been trying to mill finer flour and it has helped out but the bread is still a little on the heavy side. For the dough I just add flour and salt. My doughs feel great and the bread looks perfect coming out of the oven. Is there anything I can do to make this bread lighter and fluffier without changing the recipe? I would really love to make the bread's texture as light as my white but I know that is not possible. Am I just out of luck because of the wheat flour? Thanks in advance, James.
