  Everything else is optional.
  4. The best breads are simply a mix of flours (whole wheat, rye, oats,
  corn, buckwheat, rice, or whatever you like). Remember thought that
  wheat flours are necessary for the gluten content, unless you add
  gluten separately. Adding fruits and herbs and flavored liquids are
  interesting but I prefer "pure" breads. I prefer graham flour over
  regular whole wheat.
  5. Each machine is different and my recipes are usually not exact --
