    Red Apple Guy's Note:

    My take on Eric's Favorite Rye from If you don't have a rye sourdough starter, just use your white starter. Preparation time includes rise times for the sponge and the overnight rise in the fridge.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 25


    1.5 lb ...

    Units: US | Metric


    • 75 g sourdough starter (rye based)
    • 206 g rye flour (whole rye or white rye)
    • 206 g water



    1. 1
      Mix the sponge ingredients, cover and set at room temp until doubled in volume.
    2. 2
      Mix the dough ingredients into the sponge and, rest for 20 minutes. Dough will be very sticky. Rye doughs resemble wet cement. The rest will help a good deal with the stickiness.
    3. 3
      Knead by machine (recommended) or by hand for 8 minutes. Tip dough onto counter and stretch and fold the dough letter-style.
    4. 4
      Place dough in a straight-sided oiled container. Cover and ferment till double (1-1.5 hour or so at warm (80 F) temperature). Be sure it doubles in volume.
    5. 5
      Divide and shape into 2 loaves and place in bowls or bannetons or in a couche for support. Cover with oiled plastic and refrigerate immediately.
    6. 6
      Overnight, the loaves should rise about 50% in volume. Place on counter while preheating the oven with a water pan to 400°F.
    7. 7
      Glaze with an egg and 1 tsp water, slash the loaves, and bake at 375°F with steam for 12 minutes then remove steam pan and rotate loaves. For glossier finish, add more glaze. Bake for 30 more minutes until 200F internally. Cool on a rack.
