  • Any idea how I could make

    Any idea how I could make this into pure rye bread?  I'm wheat-free and can't have the bakers flour!

  • I used tap water, but I guess

    I used tap water, but I guess filtered water would be better!  And yes, this is a free formed loaf.  Dough is very sticky, so make sure to flour hands well when shaping or use a "baker's helper".  Shaping can be a bit tricky, so you could just put the dough in a pan, but I like the rustic free form look. Good luck!!

  • I am definitely going to try

    I am definitely going to try this bread. One question,is it best to use bottled water as with sour dough starter which can be killed by the chlorine in tap water? Also is this loaf free formed or baked in a tin.
