Divide the dough in 2 pieces, with about 2/3 of the dough in one piece and the remaining 1/3 of dough in the other. Divide the larger piece into 3 equal pieces. Roll each of these 3 pieces into 12" ropes. Place the 3 ropes on a greased baking sheet. Braid the ropes together loosely and pinch to seal the ends. Divide the remaining smaller piece of dough piece into 3 equal pieces. Roll each of these pieces into 10" ropes and braid them together loosely. Place this small braid on top of the larger braid. Pinch ends to seal the braids together.

    Cover and let rise in warm place until almost doubled in size - about 20 minutes. Beat egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water. Brush egg/water mixture over bread braids. Bake at 375º for 25 to 30 minutes. Loosely cover the loaf with foil after 15 minutes of baking time to prevent over browning. Cool loaf on a wire rack.
