Sourdough Honey Whole Wheat Bread

1 package Active Dry Yeast
1 cup Warm Water
1 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup Sourdough Starter
1/2 cup Honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Shortening
4 cups Whole Wheat Flour

Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Mix yeast, starter, honey, salt & shortening with 3 cups flour. Add more flour as needed to make a stiff dough. Knead 150 strokes on a floured surface & place in a greased bowl. Cover & let rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours until doubled in size. Punch down, let double again. Punch down & roll into tight loaf. Grease & place in bread pan. Let double in pan & bake at 400 degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until very dark golden brown, & it sounds hollow when thumped.
