Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?


Try this heritage bread, a flavorful sourdough peasant bread made with wholesome whole wheat flour.

Refined flours and instant yeasts are modern niceties. (Instant yeast wasn't available until the 1940's.) Our grandparents made wonderful, wholesome breads with whole grains and sourdough starter recipes that they brought over from the old country. This bread captures the essence of those breads of yesteryear a moist, nutty flavored bread with the tang of sourdough. This is a very good and a very different bread that you can make in your bread machine or oven.

Best sourdough bread mix yet

I have been in the market for sourdough bread mix for a while and now I can stop. This bread mix is the best so far and I have decided to stop looking. The flavor was wonderful and the texture was truly fine and tender. Most times when I use the bread machine the crust is tough and too chewy, but this was nice. Thank you for a superior product.
