I want to bake a loaf of sandwich bread using barley flour (and almond milk) in place of wheat flour and milk. The cookbook says that wheat flour is the only flour that has gluten, and therefore the only one that will work. I am under the impression that barley (and oats) also contain gluten. I'd rather not waste all the ingredients and the time if there is no hope of it working though.

My goal is to come up with some good sandwich bread that we could eat if we do an experimental no wheat or dairy diet for 3 months.

Nope. Barley flour only has 1/4 of the gluten that wheat does. You can substitute 1/4 of the wheat flour with barley flour, but that's it. Ds in alergic to wheat and I have been making a great spelt bread for sandwhiches. The family tells me it very tasty and it's very moist. I will post the recipe later, right now ds needs to be fed.
