Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Like the Basic White Bread Recipe, this is a simple, easy-to-make whole wheat bread. Want a wholesome, high-fiber bread this is the one. What great about this bread is that it only has whole wheat flour, which is unusually. Whole wheat doesn't have enough gluten so you need to add bread flour. But, because of the beer this doesn't need bread flour. It's a moist, evenly textured bread that's good enough to eat plain. I think this is the best whole wheat bread.
