Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

1 pkg. dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs. sea salt
2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1/4 cup shortening
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
4 cups sifted unbleached flour

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water.

Dissolve brown sugar in lukewarm water, add with shortening, whole wheat flour (stirred before measuring) and 1 cup of the unbleached flour to yeast. Beat thoroughly to mix well.

Stir in remaining flour to make a dough that leaves sides of the bowl. Turn out on floured board, cover and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Place in greased bowl; turn dough over once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 and a half hours. (I usually put the dough in the oven and put pans of hot water around it. The humidity helps.)

I am having trouble with the second rise of my wheat breads. What am I doing or not doing at this stage to keep getting flat wheat bread?
