Pour boiling water over shortening, brown sugar, molasses, salt, and bran in a large bowl.
Blend well and set aside to cool to lukewarm.
Soften yeast in the warm water.
Beat 1 cup flour into bran mixture.
Stir yeast into batter until thoroughly blended.
Continue beating while gradually adding about half of the remaining flour.
Beat vigorously, then mix in enough remaining flour to make a soft (not sticky) dough.
Lightly grease top of dough.
Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and divide into halves.
Knead gently until dough is smooth and "springy." Shape dough into loaves.
Place in 2 greased 8x4x2-inch loaf pans.
Cover; let rise again until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.
Bake in a 325°F oven (not preheated) 50 to 55 minutes.
Remove from oven; turn out of pans onto wire rack and lightly brush loaves with melted butter.
