What did you use to make the seeds stick?

In fact, can you share the recipe? Thanks.

The recipe is posted here:

however, it doesn't include the malted barley seed version,. I use a slurry of 1 T spoon of Tapioca starch with 1 cup or boiling water (needs to be tempered and boiled). the solution is almost watery with a little viscosity. I bruch the "glue" on the bread and spread the seeds, then I brush some more on top of the seeds.

to prevent the malted barley from burning, I boil it in water until it is soft and has absorbed as much water as it can.. And sometimes I use the water I boiled the barley in,to make the bread.  The water is basically wort which is a precursor to beer. :) 

here is a post with some of my background..

did you use a baguette pan to shape bread?

if you look at my recipe posted at my website,  and scroll down, you'll see a picture of the bread just before baking, sitting in those forms..
