Recommending this rye bread video

Rye bread video and recipe: This rye bread recipe has a super-wet dough, but what I like is the visualization of the dough's appearance and texture. You get a complete picture of where the dough should be after mixing. Also interesting is the use of water and not flour when manipulating and shaping the dough. Good instruction on shaping. No words, just film of what was done.

Mark has been a long time participant on The FreshLoaf. All of his videos are definitely worth watching. He has a bakery in....Montana??... and he has opened up his business to anyone that wants to "intern" with him. Sounds like hard but satisfying work as he has posted a blog about each intern. Look under his moniker "mcs" and see what you find.

The video showed a rye dough being manipulated before the final rise. To prevent sticking, instead of sprinkling the 100 percent - I assume extremely wet and sticky - rye dough with flour, water was used on hands, dough and counter top. I just tried this with a rye bread and it worked wonderfully.

Obviously, I did not figure this out on my own, but at least I was open to a different technique than my usual one of sprinkling flour.
