Put water and yeast in a large bowl. Let set for 5 minutes. Then add oil, sugar, salt, egg, 2 cup whole wheat flour and 4 cup white flour. Stir well with a big spoon. Add remaining whole wheat flour and knead with hands. Gradually add more white flour to form a soft dough. Knead about 20 minutes. Cover and let rise until double; punch down. Let rise again, then divide into 4 loaves. Bake at 325 degrees F for 10 minutes. Increase heat to 350 degrees F and bake for 20-25 minutes longer or until golden brown. This bread keeps a long time without getting rancid and moldy.
