Bracketing Exposure with the K7

I'm back with Pentax after many years. I used to own a delightful Program A 35mm camera. Since moving to digital I have been a Nikon guy but recently I received a K7 with the two kit lenses. I love the user friendly features of the K7 and I realize that the K5 is probably more like my Nikon D7000 but hey don't look a gift horse in the mouth. It's kinda nice to have two cameras.
Yesterday I was doing some HDR stuff by a local stream and was using exposure bracketing of three shots, over under and even with my Nikon D7000. I used the HDR Capture function on the K7 so that I could compare results. I wasn't happy with the K7 HDR's and would like to find out how to replicate the three shot exposure bracketing I can do with the D7000 on the K7. I can't find anything in the owner's manual or in the menus. No bracketing buttons on the camera either. I'm sure it's there somewhere but I just can't find it. Can anyone help me out? I want to be able to take three fast shots of the same subject, one 1 stop over, one even and one 1 stop under so that I can merge them with HDR software on my computer later. I'm not happy with the in camera processing.
Thanks in advance as I learn to enjoy my new K7.

Read page 148 of your manual.

Press the up button on your four-way controller, and select Exposure Bracketing.

Many thanks - I knew it had to be there somewhere right under my nose.
