Ingredients:  
3 cup Whole Wheat Berries
4 cups milk, Scaled (if using powdered milk you don't need to scald)
1/2 cup Shortening
6-8 teaspoons Salt (to taste)

Directions:
Directions:
Cover Wheat berries with water and soak for 3 days just set off to the side be sure to cover loosely to protect it. Rinse wheat thoroughly. Put milk in blender with wheat and crack the softened wheat - about 1/4 of mixture at a time. Add shortening, salt, honey and molasses to wheat mixture mixing with electric mixer (I don not use a mixer just do it by hand) Slowly add 2 cups of flour and the yeast mixture (remember if you're not sure of your yeast add a tiny bit of sugar to test it) Work in the rest of the flour until you have a good kneadable consistence. Knead for 15 minutes. Let raise until double in bulk. Punch down. Divide into pans and let raise again. Bake at 350 degree oven for 15 minutes then lower over to 300 for additional 45 minutes. Recipe can be halved.

Personal Notes:
I haven't tried this one, but it is supposed to be a great way to use our wheat if we don't have a grinder. That's why I'm including it.
