  Mix the starter and 2 1/2 Cups of the flour and all the water the night
  before you want to bake. Let stand in warm place overnight.
  Next morning mix in the butter with warm milk and stir in yeast until
  until dissolved.  Add honey and when thoroughly mixed, add 2 more cups of
  flour, and stir in the wheat germ.
  Sprinkle sugar, salt, and baking soda over the mixture.  Gentlypress into
  dough and  mix lightly.  Allow to stand from 30 to 50 minutes until mixture
  is bubbly.  Add enough flour until the dough cleans the sides of the bowl.
  Then place the dough on a lightly floured board and kead 100 times or until
  silky mixture is developed.  Form into 4 1-lb loaves, place in well-greased
  loaf pans 9 x 3 size.  Let rise until double, about 2 to 3 hours in a warm
  room.
  Then bake in hot oven, 400 degrees F, for 20 minutes.  Reduce oven temp. to
  325 degrees F. and bake 20 minutes longer or until thoroughly baked.
  Remove from pans and place loaves on rack to cool.  Butter tops of loaves
  to prevent hard crustyness.
