Finnish Rye

My attempt at 100% Rye Finnish sourdough bread.
It seems that it's hung by the ceiling on a pole all year round. That explains the hole in the centre. It also seems that this bread's suppose to keep all year round especially in the cold & cruel Scandinavian winter. It's gonna be winter here too, in Aus... :)

Well, since i lack a pole, that also explains the string tied around it. It's hanging in my closet alongside a slab of beef (dun ask why :P), drying and waiting to be tasted in a few days time.
