This Light, Mildly Acidic Bread is similar to what is commonly referred to as Jewish rye bread. Whole dark rye may be substituted for the medium rye in the formula. In this case, a little more water may be needed in the sourdough phase. The bread will also have a slightly more pronounced flavor. White rye flour is commonly used in this style of bread; it is, however, almost devoid of flavor, so medium or whole rye is a better choice.
