Baking fresh whole grain bread

I recently decided to try my hand at baking bread. I really want to bake 100% whole grain bread, but apparently baking bread is harder than I thought! I don’t have anyone to teach me about baking bread, so I bought a craftsy class to get some hands on training. I bought Secrets to Whole-Grain Bread Baking.

So far I am very happy with my bread baking class! It provides clear instructions on mixing and timing, which is exactly what I need. I have started out with the Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich bread. This class is about whole grain breads, but the recipes are not 100% whole grain. Apparently you are supposed to build a baking foundation of working with a blend of whole grain flours and regular white (bread flour or I suppose all purpose four) flours. Then you can move on to baking more substantial whole grain ancient and sprouted breads.
