Sour Rye sprayed with water 4 times
I made the sour rye today following David's post and spraying the loaves with water instead of the corn starch glaze as suggested by arlo and PMcCool. I sprayed the loaves well with water just before putting them into the oven and again after 15 min. and again after 10 min. and again after the temperature of the loaf was 205 degrees. I turned off the oven and let the loaves sit for 5 min. with the oven door ajar.
The crust is very firm, there is a nice shine and I'm pleased.
I used first clear flour from KAF and rye I ground. Unfortunately the loaves burst on one side.
I haven't cut the loaves yet.
