How to make it

  • stir together yeast, 1/2 cup flour and warm water in a large bowl. Cover and let sit in a warm spot for about 30 minutes.
  • Stir beer, remaining flour and salt into the bowl. Mix until all the flour is incorporated and forms a thick sticky dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 2 hours, until doubled in size.
  • Scrape all the dough from the bowl with a rubber spatula, and place on a well-floured surface. Generously flour the top of the dough and form into a loaf shape.
  • Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal. Transfer loaf to the baking sheet and sprinkle the top with flour. Cover loosely with a towel and let rise for 30-40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Place a small loaf pan of warm water on a lower rack to humidify the oven.
  • Slash a long slit in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife or razor. Place the baking sheet on the rack above the pan of warm water in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes, until the loaf is golden brown.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

    This looks great. Thanks for sharing. Ive been wanting to try a beer bread. You think this could be done in a bread machine? Never made bread without one and have only made bread 4 times using one. New to bread making
