In a medium mixing bowl combine the beer and brown sugar. Sprinkle the 1 teaspoon yeast over beer mixture; stir to dissolve. Stir in the first 1 cup bread flour. Mix well. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature (70 degrees F to 80 degrees F) for 12 to 24 hours.
Add the starter and the remaining ingredients to a 1-1/2- to 2-pound bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions. Select the basic white bread cycle and desired color setting. Makes one 1-1/2-pound loaf (24 servings).
The bread machine pan must have a capacity of 10 cups or more.
