I posted this question somewhere else, but it was buried in a longer post and got no replies:
I'm wondering rye meal. It's called for in the BBA sunflower seed bread recipe as a soaker, and I've yet to see it in any stores here. The recipe also says one can use coarse dark rye flour, and I have something more or less labeled as such, but it's neither very coarse nor very dark.
What do you think my best options are here? I have access to whole rye kernels as well as rye flakes; would it be possible to grind my own meal?
