First you need a starter. Mine was a donation from a lovely friend. To this starter I added 100gr of warm water and 100gr of rye flour to feed the wee beast.
Once it had digested and was nicely bubbled I turned most of it out into a china bowl and added 3.5cups of warm water and the same amount of flour. I used a mix of rye and spelt flour this time. I mixed it and let it sit in a warm spot for about 12hrs but covered with a cloth. Be sure to use glass or china and not metal when playing with this.
Once my mix had proven a bit I added more rye flour to make it a thick but sticky mix. I put it into a bread tin and covered it with a cloth and let it prove overnight.
To bake I heated the oven as hot as it can go and cooked it at this temp (260c) for 10minutes. I then reduced the heat to 190c and backed for a further 50min.
The taste was perfect, just the right amount of sourness and because I used rye and spelt it was a nice flavour combination. I think I will make a thicker dough next time and cook on the higher heat for longer and see how that affects the texture as it was still a tiny bit sticky inside.
Overall I give it a 5/10 and figure it turned out pretty good for a first time loaf!
