 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   sugar
    1      package       active dry yeast
      1/2  cup           warm beer -- 105-115 deg
    2 1/2  cups          bread flour
    1      cup           sharp cheddar cheese -- shredded
                         --or use extra sharp cheddar
      1/3  cup           nonfat dry milk powder -- instant
      3/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      dry mustard
      1/4  teaspoon      ground red pepper
    1      large         egg -- beaten
    1      large         egg white -- slightly beaten
    1      teaspoon      sesame seeds -- toasted
 
 Dissolve sugar and yeast in warm beer in a large bowl.	Let stand for 5 minutes. 
Stir in 2 1/4 cups flour and next 6 ingredients to form a soft dough.  Knead
about 8 minutes, adding additional flour as necessary.	Divide dough in half and
shape each portion into a 6 inch round loaf.  Place loaves 4 inches apart on a
large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.  Brush tops with egg white and
sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Make 1/8-inch deep cuts in a lattice design across
tops of loaves.   Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour and
 15 minutes.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when
tapped.  Cool on a wire rack NOTE from me:  I am not sure the cooking time is
correct; it
 seems too short. Prize winner in yeast and cheese bread division at Del Mar
