Bran Enriched White Bread

Need a little fiber in your diet? Try this bread, it rises great, makes great toast and awesome sandwhiches. Its by far the best bread I have made so far, again from the book Artisian Bread in 5 Minutes a Day.

Bran Bread
3 cups luke warm water
1 1/2 tbsp granulated yeast
1 1/2 tbsp Kosher salt
3/4 cup wheat bran
5 3/4 cup all purpose flour
Put the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl or lidded container. Mix the last 2 in another bowl. Add the flour mix slowly stirring well. When mixed cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temp for 2 hours. Then refridgerate until ready to use, up to 14 days. On baking day dust dough with flour and cut off about half of it, adding more flour to ball and quickly shaping it into a ball by turning the sides under. Put it in a greased loaf pan and let it rise 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 and dust the top of the loaf with flour and cut slits in it. Bake for about 30 minutes until its browned on top and allow to cool completely before cutting.
