Multigrain bread with whey

If there is a lot of whey when making cheese, I also use it to bake a wholsesome bread. This multigrain bread is beautifully juicy and the dark beet syrup not only gives it a nice colour, it also gives it a good taste. Depending on how hearty you like the bread, you can grind the multigrain mixture coarser or finer.
