Five-Grain Sourdough with Rye Sourdough
Another classic from "Bread". As always, I eliminated commercial yeast and extended rising time accordingly. So fragrant and delicious. Original recipe makes a lot of bread, which is a good thing, because they disppeared really fast. Of course I increased hydration, because my whole rye flour is very thirsty - and because I am a sucker for wet dough. My rye starter is way fast, especially in this weather, and this bread has a very high levain ratio, which means that it's a pretty fast bread to make.

How can it NOT be delicious with this many seeds and grains?
Crumb is pretty open for a bread with 25% whole rye, and this much seeds.
