Stone-ground wheat flour, hibiscus ale, and sage honey. The dough rose a bit less than I thought it would, which had me worried for a while; fortunately, while it's slightly heavy (likely due to the type of flour I used), it's otherwise fine.

A little sweeter than I prefer, though. I think I'll use less honey next time.

Just made this, it was really good. Second loaf, I reduced the honey to 2 tablespoons and increased the flour to 3 cups. Resulting loaf was not noticeably different in taste or texture from the first, but rose a little higher.

Nice recipe, thanks for sharing!
