Hey it's "Beer Bread revisited!" I don't see any hijacking going on... ;D

Tried the Cooks Illustrated "Easy Sandwich Bread" that takes less than 2 hours. The author states optimistically 90 minutes start to finish. My experience was 105 minutes from hydrating the flour and ending with a baked loaf cooling on a rack.

Substituted beer for the water and skipped the honey and butter.

Turned out pretty good. Very much like the premium store-bought sandwich bread that comes in the bag. But better.

Ah ha! This thread just gave me an idea on what to do with those two cans of megaswill left in the fridge from a recent family visit. Beer bread it is. Just poured out enough for the first loaf and letting it warm up/degas before I make bread with it.

I'm sure it will work out fine...
