New Favorite Recipe

So I've been looking and trying and looking and trying out whole/multigrain bread recipes without much success. I mean, they turn out okay, and look beautiful. They're nice for a slice of bread with dinner - but as far as sandwiches go the textures of all the ones I've tried are just way too crumbly and dry. I found this recipe online and tweaked it a bit (added 6 grain cereal and ran out of whole wheat flour - substituting white) and the result was AMAZING! Chewy and hearty, but holds together beautifully for sandwiches! If you want to try it out, here's the recipe:

THE Bread Recipe

3 C. Whole Wheat Flour

1/3 C. Vital Wheat Gluten

1 1/2 T. Instant Yeast

2 1/2 C Hot Water

1 T. Salt

1/3 C. Oil

1/3 C. Honey

1 1/2 T. Lemon Juice

1 C. 6-Grain Cereal

2 T. Ground Flax Seed

3-4 C. White Flour

Mix together first 3 ingredients in a mixer wiht a dough hook. Add water all a once and mix for one minute. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Add salt, oil, honey and lemon juice and beat for one minute. Add cereal, flax and last flour one cup at a time, beating between each cup. Beat for about 10 more minutes until dough pulls away from side of bowl. This makes a very soft dough.

Turn dough onto an oiled counter top. Divide into 2 loaves and place into 2 4X8 bread pans, previously sprayed with non-stick spray. Let rise covered in a warm place until dough reaches about 1/2 inc above top of pan. Turn oven on toe 350 degrees and place pans immediately in oven. Do not wait to preheat. Bake for 30 minutes from the time you turn on the oven. Remove from pans and cool on rack. Enjoy!

That bread sounds super yummy, but I have a question. What is 6 grain cereal? Thanks!
