Honey whole wheat bread -- in the breadmaker

This is also from "The Bread Lovers Bread Machine Cookbook." Eventually, I guess, I'll have to branch out, but there are 300 recipes in this book, which should keep me busy a good long time.
I made this recipe twice before I got it right. The first time I used the Basic setting, which is what the author called for, and the bread was dense and hadn't risen enough. Second time around, I used the Wheat setting, and it was just perfect. Good with our soup, and good for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches later on in the week.

for 2 lb. loaf

1/2 c. water
2/3 c. milk
1/3 c. honey
1 large egg
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, cut into pieces
2 2/3 c. bread flour
1 1/3 c. whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. gluten
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. plus 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast

Place all ingredients in the pan according to the manufacturer's instructions. Set crust on medium and program for Wheat cycle, press start.
When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove and place on a rack. Let cook before slicing.
