      Title: Raw gluten
 Categories: Vegetarian
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
      7 c  Whole wheat bread flour
      3 c  ;water
 
   Pour the water into a large bowl. Add about 3 cups of the flour and
  mix well. Beatthe dough for about 100 strokes, or until it becomes
  elastic. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a
  kneadable dough.
  
   Turn the dough out onto agenerously floured surface and knead in
  enough flour to make a firm and nonsticky dough. Knead the dough
  vigorously for 20 minutes. If kneading becomes too difficult for you,
  try pounding the dough with a rolling pin or with your fists.
  
   Continue kneading and/or pounding the dough until it becomes very
  smooth and elastic. To make sure that the dough is kneaded enough,
  break off a small piece and wash it. If it is sufficiently kneaded,
  the starch will wash away, leaving the elastic gluten.
  
   The next step is washing or rinsing the dough. Fill a large bowl with
  room-temperature water (use the same bowl you used to mix the dough).
  Place the bowl in the sink and place the dough in the bowl. Work the
  dough by rubbing it and sqsueezing it between your hands with a
  motion similar to that of washing clothes.
   Don't worry if the dough falls apart, because it will come back
  together as it is washed.
  
   When the water becomes very cloudy, pour (with the dough) through a
  colander. If you want to save the starch water, place an empty bowl
  under the colander to catch it. Repeat this squeezing and rinsing
  process until the rinse water is practically clear and the dough
  resembles a large, elastic wad of chewing gum.
   You now have raw gluten.
  
   Use the raw gluten to make seitan.
