1 1/2 C water (very warm)
Keep in mind this recipe has been custom constructed for a BOSCH, if you do not have a Bosch and are using a Kitchenaid 1st of all bummer, secondly you will have to half this recipe.
Heat milk on stove top or microwave until very warm, then gently add to mixer. Combine shortening, sugar, water, 4-5 cups of flour and then yeast. Knead in mixer (Bosch) until smooth (approx 2 min) then add 1 cup at a time flour and salt until dough is formed and is barely pulling away from sides of mixer. Knead an additional 8 minutes in mixer. When ready pour out into greased bowl and cover with damp cheese cloth until doubles in size. Remove from bowl onto well floured countertop and separate into 7-8 equal loaves depending on size. Brush with butter or egg whites and let rest until rises in bread pan and bake at 350 until well golden (40 min approx)... don't under bake and don't over bake.
