I bought this after a recommendation from a friend. I was a bit unsure about ordering because 16kg really is a lot of bread mix if you're not that keen on it. As it turned out, the bread is absolutely delicious and very easy to make too as the mix seems very feisty. In fact, even with my teenaged son's rather 'unusual' kneading technique it still rises beautifully.
There are no instructions on the packet as to what quantities to use, oven settings etc which was slightly annoying as I didn't want to waste any experimenting. However, this is what worked for me: 1kg bread mix to 550ml hand hot water. Knead for 5 mins (by hand), leave to rise for an hour then shape into 2 round loaves. Leave to rise for another hour (I bet it doesn't actually need two risings but this is how I always make bread), heat the oven to 250C, pour in a small cup full of water and when the oven is filled with steam put the loaves in (cut the tops) and turn oven down to 180c and cook for about 40 mins.
