Dissolve the yeast in the stock; stir in the salt, butter, and honey.
In a separate bowl stir together the wheat germ, milk powder, and whole wheat flour. Stir this into the liquid mixture gradually, until the dough is dry enough to knead.
Knead until smooth and elastic; let rise until double. Shape into 3 loaves, place in well-oiled pans, let rise again.
Bake at 325 °F for 40 to 45 minutes.
