Wheat flour is generally pretty heavy and it's hard to get a good rise. Have you tried mixing the wheat flour 1/2 and 1/2 with something else (I've used oat flour with good results) and make sure your liquid is hot enough to activate the yeast ~ it should be just over 100 degrees. Good luck!

I agree with PP about the water being warm enough to activate the yeast also check your exp. date on the yeast. If it has expired it won't work either. HTH

Re: Whole Wheat Bread Not Rising Very High

I have never been able to get my 100% whole wheat bread to raise like a loaf in the grocery store. WWF is so heavy.

I have never tried this recipe. You may have luck with it.
