Mix water and milk in sauce pan or in microwave to heat to 115 F.
Pour into large mixing bowl, add olive oil, honey, sea salt.
Let cool to 105 F.
Measure the flours: sift together 4 cups of whole wheat and 4 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour.
Reserve another 4 cups of the white flour for flouring the bread board and kneading.
Heat 1 cup warm water to 102-105 F, add the yeast.
Stir to dissolve yeast, it will become foamy and small bubbles on surface of water.
Let set 5-8 minutes to allow yeast to proof, become active.
Pour yeast into the 105 F seasoned milk/water mixture.
Add 4 cups of blended flour, beat thoroughly.
Add remaining blended flour, beat together until dough sticks together.
Using reserved flour, lightly flour bread board.
Pour out the dough, flour hands, knead together until dough handles easily.
Let rest for 10 minutes on bread board.
Resume kneading for 10 minutes, adding more flour to keep from sticking on board.
Knead until smooth and elastic. (Knead by pressing with heel of both hands, turn 1/4 circle, turn down over in half, knead again, continuing same technique.)
Oil large bowl, roll dough into a ball, oil the dough with a brush.
Cover bowl, place in warm, 75-85 F place to rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour. Do not disturb during rise time.
Grease 3 9 x 5 1/2 x 3 inch pans.
When finger is pressed into dough leaving an indention, it is ready to be punch down with fists allowing the gases escape.
Pour on lightly floured board, cut into 3 equal parts. Roll each into a ball, let rest.
Roll each ball into a 9 x 12 rectangle, starting at the 9 inch end, roll up, pinch the ends on seam together, putting the seam on the bottom. Put into the greased loaf pans, ends touching the pans.
Lightly grease tops of the bread for a soft crust.
Cover the pans and set in warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
At the end of second rise, put into oven to bake about 45 minutes. Put foil over top of bread if browning too quickly.
Bread is done when removed it will sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
