This is my first post here, so here goes.  I have been reading since
Digest #60 or so, and have been looking for pointers on how to make
a good loaf of whole wheat bread.  I have been to a number of 
restaurants that make their own whole-wheat loaves which are wonderfully
light, with a crispy crust and flavorful interior.  You don't even
need butter.

White breads I can do.  But every time I try for, say 50-100% whole
wheat loaf the results have been less than satisfactory.

What I get I call "Utility-B grade State Bread."  This is durable 
maximum density loaf issued by government for the comrade people's 
nutrition and efficient bowel movement.  Surplus good for insulation 
and erosion fill.

Any suggestions?
