    Katie you are amazing! Thank you for another great e-book. Soaking grains feels like a huge step for me and this book will be a big help. I know I’ll look back and think “what was I so afraid of anyway?” but the first steps are the hardest ;o) Thank you for all you do!

    Katie,
    Thanks so much for the free e book! I have a question about the bread.. why is vital wheat gluten not good to use. I have heard that it is not a good food but i don’t know why. Can You explain it please. I regularly follow your blog since taking the gnowflins course. Maybe I missed the explanation there. Thanks so much for all you do.

    Teresa,
    Really, for many people, there might be nothing wrong with adding gluten. The problem with it is two-fold: 1. it’s simply not a “whole” food since it’s pulled out of the wheat and added back into the bread in irregular quantities. 2. there is such a rise in gluten intolerance, and over exposure to gluten b/c of its use in whole grain breads is one theory as to why.

    Gluten helps whole wheat bread be fluffier and rise better, which Americans really like. My goal is always to find a good bread recipe that doesn’t use gluten, just to be on the safe side. However…I do have a bag of it in my freezer!

    Here’s my search for the perfect whole grain bread w/o gluten: http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2011/01/04/introducing-seeking-the-perfect-homemade-whole-wheat-bread/

    Hope that helps! :) katie

    Hi! New here & love your site!
    If you don’t mind can you tell me why people are soaking their grains? This is the first I have heard of this. Or maybe it was in one of your earlier posts?
    Thank you! :-)

    Excited to get into more soaking & fermenting…! However, I was terribly disappointed with the wheat-free maple oat scones on page 54 – it calls for 2 tsp baking soda, which was way too much! I prepared these yesterday morning to bake today for brunch with my grandparents, and luckily, I took the first bite – they were awful and bitter! What a waste of good butter and maple syrup! The texture was nice, and they smelled great in the oven, but they were inedible! Probably 1/2 tsp would have sufficed :(
