This recipe, the first one I've tried from King Arthur Flour's Whole Grain Baking book and my first attempt at making bread with white whole wheat flour, was quite delicious - a tad sweet with a wonderful light texture, in spite of the fact that I neglected the dough a bit causing it to over-rise slightly during the second rise and, as a result, collapse in the center during baking if you look closely you can see the collapsed, wrinkly center in the photos - fortunately, it didn't develop too much of the sour flavor often associated with over-risen dough!

I too have gotten soggy bagels with this recipe, but it was because my refrigerator wasn’t cooling properly: if yours are soggy they may have over-risen they’re structure could have been compromised prior to hitting the boiling water, or the gluten wasn’t properly developed–if they don’t form a tight “skin” when forming the bagel there will be ways for water to get in.
