Home Milled Whole Wheat Bread (for bread machine)

My fiancée and I have recently started milling our own whole grain flour in an attempt to be ecologically and economically friendly, but we've had a very hard time figuring out how to get our bread just right, as the home milled stuff is quite a bit coarser than factory milled flour. Well, I finally figured it out! ...even though I had to compromise and use part factory milled, at least half of it is ours (and hopefully all of it will be once we get a better mill). :o)
