  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  6. Place a small loaf pan of warm water on a lower rack to humidify the oven.
  7. 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.
  8. Transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

This was really easy to make and creates a really artisan looking bread. The loaf is quite huge too, which I was happy about. The flavor is good, but not as developed as Chef John's pumpkin brea...

This was the best bread I've ever tasted! I added some crushed oregano, thyme & basil to dough and wrapped it in rosemary branches while it rose for extra flavor.

This is now my "go to" recipe for homemade white bread. It is super easy and you cannot screw it up. If you have never made bread before, give it a try. You will be surprised by your results!...
