Has anyone successfully made a loaf in a Russell Hobbs bread maker with Spelt Flour?

The Fodmap diet says this flour is better for you but it doesn't seem to work with Spelt flour in my bread maker.

At the moment it is very difficult to get Spelt Flour especially wholewheat but then to put it in the bread makers and it comes out flat is very annoying.

Can you help?

I've done it but my Russell Hobbs died a couple of days later.
Are you using wholemeal or wholegrain spelt?

I can't get wholegrain Spelt but I did manage to get white spelt which is arriving tomorrow so I am going to make a white spelt loaf. Did you do anything different than the manual tells you? Do you think putting Spelt flour in your machine cause it to break down?

I was using an elderly friend's family recipe.
I believe that baking spelt caused my russell hobbs to die.

Spelt flour bread on its own can be quite tricky.
Foods baked with spelt don't rise as high as those with wheat.
There often has to be changes to the amount of yeast between recipes with wholemeal spelt flour and those with wholegrain spelt.
You might want to check out youtube baking spelt bread or bread blogs and start with the easier spelt recipes/those with mixed flour.
