I use to "blend" my wheat in the food processor after soaking and then add more flour, but lately I've been using store bought flour, so I wonder if that's it. It just hasn't been rising well at all, even if I use extra gluten... Any ideas?
It seems to rise *ok* the first time, but not the second time...

Suggestions when baking with whole wheat/grains:[LIST]
[*]Be sure your yeast if fresh and active. Test it by taking 1 Tbs of your yeast and adding 1 Cup of warm water and 1/2 tsp of sugar or succanant. It should double in size within 10 minutes. Store your yeast in a closed package/jar in the freezer when not using. This will extend it's life.
