tried to make a bread with yeast.

 

seemed to raise well, but then fell flat in the oven.

 

i think i know where i went wrong - possibly up to 3 times , but it might be some time before i try again.

I can't think of what Craig's handle is on here but from what he posts on his FB page he is  the breadmaster.

recipe didn't call for the bread to be kneeded, but i did.  almost all the comments said kneed.

i made the loaves after it rose, not before - didn't raise enough after i made the loaves.

 

 

it was a combination whole wheat and whole grain rye.

Ah.  Makes sense.

Doesn't seem like the kneading itself caused it to fall, but letting it rise first did.

Especially if you didn't knead it again before making the loaves.

Those whole grain flours are heavy and can be tough to work with.

They require a bit more TLC than the lighter flours.

yeah it never was going to be a light loaf, but any flatter and it would have been a wrap.
