    So far, 1 star.

    Has anyone had any success with these Weyerman Bread Mixes? I’ve made one in a machine, one by hand. There doesn’t seem to be any gluten in the mix. No matter how much kneading I do, the dough has no strength and just tears easily. So it doesn’t develop any structure when rising. Both loaves have turned out as small, solid bricks, dense and hard.

    They don’t rise very convincingly, either. Probably because the dough has no strength to retain the CO2.

    The mix is still well in date.

    Anyone any tips?

      Chris, these are German rye style dark breads, not your light fluffy English style. What you are reporting is exactly as they should be, they are quite heavy without the structure that you are used to. Slice thinly, whack with a load of butter / pate / pickles etc and you are away, it is delicious.

    Had another go, and this time much better. I used a food mixer for the initial mix, and mixed for about 10 mins. I also increased the proving time 50% longer than the instructions advised. I got a finished loaf about 50% bigger than my first two attempts. This seems more like it should be. It is a denser bread than normal yeast breads, perhaps twice as dense (so you only get a loaf half the size you’d expect for the weight) but does have some crumb this time. It now isn’t a challenge to eat it, but a joy. Very tasty stuff.

    If you’re into bread-making, I’d recommend you try it. It’s something very different to most bread styles. But be wary of using a bread machine, that didn’t work at all well for me.

    (Robert, I know it should be solid, but not so solid you feel you are risking teeth by tackling it. My first two tries, if you dropped it on your foot, you’d know about it)

      Hey Chris, very useful info thanks

    I made my first loaf in a bread machine. The dough was very wet so I did madly chuck in more flour and re-read the instructions as felt sure I should have added oil, sugar, salt and what about yeast?

    The instructions were simple just add beer.

    After a few hours of pacing the bake was finished and I tipped it out. Yes it’s small and compact but sliced easily and smothered with butter as Chris suggested and, oh my, it is delicious. I used the basic setting so next time will try the wholemeal setting. I would post a picture if I could ❤️
