Whole Wheat Bread

1 tbl. dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water

2 1/2 cups hot water
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. salt
1/4 cup oil
3 cups stirred whole wheat flour
5 cups sifted all purpose white flour

Soften yeast in warm water. Combine hot water, sugar, salt, and oil; cool to lukewarm. 

Stir in whole wheat flour, one cup of the white flour, and the yeast mixture; beat well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead well. 

Shape dough into a ball, place in lightly greased bowl, cover, let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 1/2 hours). Shape into 2 loaves, place in greased loaf pans, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 1/4 hours). 

Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes. Cover with foil for the last 20 minutes if the top is getting too brown.
