Bacheldre Oak Smoked Strong Malted Blend Flour can be obtained from most branches of Waitrose. I've found that with all brown or wholemeal flour bread recipes, half a vitamin C tablet (ascorbic acid) crushed between two tablespoons (about 100 mg) and added to the flour, seems to prevent a heavy, poorly risen loaf. It has an effect on Glutathione (Wikipedia) which has an affect on the the elasticity of the dough.
