We made this recipe as it reads- makes a very enjoyable bread. However I wanted a stronger whole wheat flavor and we changed the recipe a little. We used 1 cup all-purpose flour and 2 cups whole wheat flour. We also substituted maple sugar in place of the brown sugar. The result was a very wonderful wheat bread!

Also note-the flavor of the bread will change depending on type of beer used. We used a light beer!
