Yikes! That is a helluva way to get your whole grain bread
I would never have the patience for that because I love bread so much I would keep on asking "Can we eat it yet?"
However, I have visited my share of bakeries that make truly whole grain breads and I think I would have chained myself to one of the machines if I hadn't had someone with me. Every bread I tasted was so delicious.
Thanks for your tale.
