Hi, Saintdennis.

If purchasing cookbooks or getting them from your library is an option, "Bread" by Jeffrey Hamelman has lots of German ryes, and "Local Breads" by Daniel Leader has many German and Czech ryes. I've made several Czech breads from Leader's book. If you pay attention to some of his errors in measurement, the breads are terrific - among my favorites.
