Mellow Bakers Ale Bread with Wheat Grains

Cooked Wheat Grains

Malted Grains

Ground malted grains

Active starter
 Method -  Mix together a bit at half hour intervals and rise for two hours in a muslin lined banneton
Banneton deployed
Now the difficult bit - Slash with a Union Jack shape

Dressed and Slashed
and bake

I did a St George Cross too!

A good fun loaf.  Taste report to be added later.

Taste: Great! Not too sweet, moist but not soggy. Interesting range of textures from the cooked grains through to the malted grains (which had a bit of bite as I hadn't ground them down completely). Great crust. Every mouthful a pleasure!
