Whole Grain Gluten-Free Overnight Rise Bread

Have you ever thought you had a particular way of doing something, only to discover that there is an even better way to do the same thing?

Reading a friend's book led me to rethink my typical way of making bread. 
Donna Currie wrote this fabulous book, Make Ahead Bread, using the technique of an overnight rise in the refrigerator to develop both flavor and texture. 

I love using techniques from conventional baking books to improve my gluten-free baking.
Overnight rise lets the yeast grow slowly, developing more flavor than a quick rise.

And it also allows for a second rise for a gluten free bread.  Rarely can gluten-free bread handle a second rise, especially without xanthan or guar gum.

I'm still working on a true gum free sourdough, starting from wild yeast. The long overnight rise and second rise combine to make for a very flavorful loaf of bread, with a fine texture.

Total time:
Yield: 1 loaf or 2 smaller depending on pan used
660 grams (4 cups) Gluten Free Whole Grain Flour Mix
10 grams (2 teaspoons) salt
20 grams (2 tablespoons) psyllium husk I use psyllium husk to create the structure of gluten free baked goods, in place of xanthan gum which gives my husband a bad reaction.
10 grams (1 tablespoon) yeast
700 grams (3 cups) water
10 grams (1 teaspoon) honey or sugar for vegan
Equipment:One Bread Pan 8.5"x 4.5" greased or two smaller pans
