FWSY Harvest Bread with Poolish - Sub for Wheat Bran
First time poster here ...I'm making Ken Forkish's Harvest Bread with Poolish for the first time. It contains 10% WW, 5% wheat germ and 2% wheat bran. It also suggests coating the loaf in wheat bran for crunch. I have wheat germ but not wheat bran.
Should I just substitute the wheat germ for wheat bran or could I use something like flax seeds or ground up rolled oats?
Also for the top, any suggestions for a nice crunchy topping without wheat bran? In my pantry I have flax seeds, wheat bran, rolled oats, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and caraway
