Flour experiment 2: mixed flour Turkish bread

I thought I had at least 2 cups of bean flour.  So, I bravely started the next experiment.  For some reason, I went onto Turkish bread.  I love the stuff and I was too lazy to do mashed potato first.  After getting the yeast ready, I discovered I in fact was down to 1 last cup of bean flour.  So, 1 bean flour to 4 wheat/bakers' flour.  The good news is that it worked - I thought very well.  

I learned that 1 cup untreated (no mashed potato) results in quite a crumbly bread (very nice though).  So, I will try the same bread with 2 cups (1.5 bean flour and 0.5 mashed potato) to 3 wheat.  I will continue until I am using as little wheat flour as will work in the bread.  The aim is to make things pretty much entirely from my own flour. I did the easiest first successfully (pancake)  and have progressed to pretty much a normal bread which is the most difficult.  I'm now getting quite cocky about bean tortillas with no wheat at all.
