In a glass mixing bowl, combine milk, water, and butter. Warm it in the microwave for about a minute or until the butter is mostly melted. The ideal temperature is about 110°
In a stand mixer, combine 7 cups of flour, sugar, salt, years and mix for about thirty seconds. Gradually add the luke warm liquids to the dry ingredients. Knead on a slow speed for about a minute, then gradually add remaining flour one tablespoon at a time until the dough clings to the dough hook and the sides of the bowl are clean. Knead two minutes more.
After the dough has kneaded, place it in a greased bowl to rise in a warm location for about thirty minutes to an hour, until doubled in size.
