I microwave the OJ and margarine for 1 minute, to warm it.

* We have the Hitachi machine that makes a loaf of a little less than 1-1/2
pounds. It handles 3 cups of flour very well, but seems to have a harder
time forming a dough ball with greater amounts of flour. One thing that I
noticed with the recipes in this cookbook is that frequently the "Large"
recipe calls for a total of more than 3 cups of flour/oatmeal/wheat germ.
The Hitachi has difficulty in dealing with this. (If I am around when I
start the bread, I can help it get started; however, most often I bake
bread on the timer, so that it is ready for breakfast.) The "Medium"
recipe, however, often produces a short loaf that lasts for about 10
minutes around here. What I have found is that a larger loaf is produced by
using the proportions of liquid to flour that the Hitachi cookbook
suggests: use 1-1/8 cup of liquid to 3 cups of flour for a loaf that rises
to the top of the baking pan.

** I have also found that there is absolutely no difference in volume of
the bread or how well it rises if I use 1-1/2 teaspoons of yeast rather
than 2-1/2 teaspoons. The most critical element to producing a good loaf
seems to relate to the temperature of the ingredients. If you keep your
yeast in the refrig, allow it to warm up for about 1/2 hour before making
the bread.
