Kevin's baking mix

Do many of you still use Kevin's baking mix and is anyone making his yeast breads? It seems like most people here are going gluten free and away from any wheat products. I have tried some of the GF breads (not all, I admit) and just don't like any I have tried. They are all either too heavy or too much fiber. They seem to bother me physically more than wheat products. I haven't made his mix for awhile, but used to like it for cookies, etc. though I never got up the nerve to try the yeast breads. I was was thinking of making his mix again and trying my hand at making yeast bread with it. I just never see any more discussions about it here and was wondering if any of you, especially diabetics, are using it successfully without rises in blood glucose or weight gain.

I made a loaf of bread today. Rye, to be exact. I don't use the mix, I just mix as I go.

Not diabetic, so can't help you there.

Thanks for responding. Since I'm interested in making bread, I would be interested in how you make it. Would you mind posting your recipe or listing the ingredients you use in your bread? TIA.

Thank you both for your responses. drj, thanks for the link to the "experiments" thread. I think I will get a lot of info from there. Of course, I've been reading Kevins threads lately, but I didn't know about this one.

Use it all the time. My son has diabetes so I bake the bread for him and me. The WPI 5000 has since been reformulated so I adjusted the amount in Kevin's mix to reflect that. I have made a few tweaks but it is essentially the same mix.
