This makes a hearty, full flavored, wonderfully textured 1 1/2 lb. Dark Rye Bread. I had a hard time finding a Rye Bread recipe dark enough, so I combined 5 or 6 different ideas from lots of recipes to get my desired "strength" of Rye. There are a TON of ingredients, I know...but it's worth the effort. Enjoy!
