This is a light rye bread. It uses flat beer in the drink half and let the rest sit out! It has a slightly sweet taste.

Used regular all purpose flour plus a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Good strong rye flavor, yet a light bread. Made for ZWT4. Just a tip if you don't have any flat beer--if you heat your beer to a simmer and let it cool, it will be flat--faster than just leaving it out.

Made for ZWT4 Beverage Challenge - Bier ist Nahrung .I am so glad I tried this bread. Added 4 tbsp flax seeds, and 4 tbsp sunflowerseed, both because I like the taste and texture of that, but also because it makes it better for you. Great recipe. Love this bread toasted with sharp cheddar.Thanks Mary.
