    Rye? I exclusively use a rye starter, and that seems to be an issue with a lot of sourdough recipes. I'm not sure how to adjust the water in most recipes, or the flour in this one as rye does not have the same amount of gluten and therefore doesn't interact with water like an all purpose flour does. More or less flour? How much? Will these buns actually be light or will they be too heavy again? Rye breads tend to rise less, be chewy and denser. Will it work? How much of a difference will I see because of the rye vs all purpose?

    Fantastic recipe. Worked really well, lovely soft buns. I shaped by hand rather than cutting.I brushed with milk and sprinkled with sesame seeds before baking. I put them into my maxed out oven as I do with all sourdough and then turned down to 250C until ready. Very happy.

    Recipe was easy enough to follow. Was my very first time making buns. They are good but on the dense side. Got good rise out of them and a little small for my liking. Will def do again

    I'm not seeing yeast in the recipe. Is this why people are struggling with it?

    I got progressively better results but the biggest change for me was to increase the baking temperature to 400 to 425 degrees from 350. Kept the recipe pretty well intact
