Number of Servings: 96


    1 cup sourdough
    7 cups warm water
    2 T. instant yeast
    1/4 cup honey
    4 tsp. salt
    130 g. vital wheat gluten (about 1 cup)
    1 T. carraway seeds opt.
    350g freshly twice ground rye flour (about 3 or 4 cups)
    1750g freshly twice ground wheat flour (about 14 c ups) I use prairie gold wheat berries.
    1/3 cup oil
    1 T. butter


In a large bowl, whisk together sourdough, water, yeast, honey, salt, gluten and carraway. Add rye and whisk till smooth. Add about 6 cups of the wheat flour and whisk until smooth. Add remaining flour a little at a time, stirring in with a wooden spoon. Pour oil over dough and knead in with your hands. Don't try to incorporate it all. Place lid on bowl. Let rise for 2-3 hours, punching down every 30 minutes. Be carefull not to let it rise longer than 30 minutes at a time or the structure of the bread will be compromised. When ready, divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Shape each into a loaf and place into greased 8"x4" loaf pans. Poke each loaf with a fork all over to release any trapped air. Cover with a damp towel. Let rise for 30 minutes. Place into a cold oven. Turn oven on to 400 degreese and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on a wire rack. While still warm, rub butter over top crust to soften. Makes 6 loaves, with about 16 slices per loaf.

    This was a great bread!! I love rye bread but with the caraway seeds ground up, the little kids didn't fuss about biting into the seeds either, but you still have the flavor!! - 6/27/09
