I have a question about the recipe "Homemade Bagels" from Angela Brown. Can I make bagels with spelt flour? Thanks!

My first reaction, having made some clunkers with alternative flours (or too much of them substituted in what was originally a wheat flour recipe), was to be cautious. My second, after a couple quick googles, is that there are lots of recipes from reliable sources for bread made all from spelt flour, and bagels made from all-spelt or spelt & wheat. Have a look, maybe make one of those recipes first...designed to work with the spelt flour...then come back to the Angela Brown recipe, maybe make it once as written, then with your modifications.
