2 packs Dry yeast
1¼ cup Milk; lukewarm
5¾ cup Flour; unbleached
½ cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Salt
½ teaspoon Cloves
½ teaspoon Pepper
12 ounces Beer
½ cup Corn syrup; light
2 cups Rye flour

In large bowl, soften yeast in warm milk. Let stand 5 minutes. Beat in 1 cup flour, sugar, salt, cloves, pepper. Cover, let stand in warm place 40 minutes until dough becomes light and bubbly. Add beer and corn syrup. Stir in rye flour, raisins, enough of remaining flour to make moderately stiff dough. Turn out onto floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover, let rise until double, about 1 hour. Punch dough down, let rest 10 minutes.

Divide into thirds, shape in round loaves. Place on greased cookie sheets.
