That is one nice loaf! Congratulations! I will use your recipe. I like the combination of spelt and rye. Did you use whole spelt and whole rye?

that has some spelt and rye in it.  It looks great on the outside so it must be great on the inside.  A crumb shot would be nice to see and how does it taste?

Very nice baking!

I'm always looking for breads that don't use any wheat for friends who are ok with some gluten but not with wheat.

Curious, sungmo kim - you say the preferment sat for 12 hours in the refrigerator, but you give a temperature of 70-75F.  The temperature is still higher than room temperature, so was it at room temp, or in the fridge?

Thanks for sharing!

Refrigeration temperature is correct.

Thank you.

Sounds great... 

At the risk of being naive, is the yeast measurement correct? less than 1g for the whole loaf?

Total 0.9g

Thanks

How does one even weigh less than 1g?  the minimum measurement on all the scales I find is 1g
