I don't have any experience with bread.  This was my second attempt with a very basic recipe (water, yeast, sugar, salt, and flour) in a dutch oven.  It's actually pretty damn good.  I'm going to try to bake some more on Sunday.

Once you get the hang of it, try using a cup of spent grain in place of a cup of whole wheat flour (and reduce the water a bit) and get some interesting taste and texture at no extra cost. I always take a few cups of my spent grain and put it in the freezer for use in making bread.

Nice 2nd go at breadmaking, a warm hunk of that dunked in N/A coffee stout would probably be pretty damn tasty. A word of warning though, making bread can be about as addictive as brewing, which isn't surprising as the both entail a buttload of carbs, an infinite variety of possible permutations and ingredients, and a lot of yeast wrangling. Hmmm, ya got me thinking, it's been over a year since I've made bread, and the game does start kinda late tomorrow...
