The starter is the same as described above, so there is no change there. But instead of making the final dough directly with the starter, we will have an intermediate starter ​(poolish).
  
-Start off with 80ml of sourdough starter, 200g of wholegrain rye flour, and 220ml of water. Mix, and let sit for 8 to 12 hours, depending on room temperature. This first dough will ferment thoroughly, and taste fairly sour when that's done.+Start off with 50ml of sourdough starter, 200g of wholegrain rye or spelt flour, and 220ml of water. Mix, and let sit for 8 to 12 hours, depending on room temperature. This first dough, the poolish, ​will ferment thoroughly, and taste fairly sour when that's done.
  
-Now mix in 215g of strong white flour, and 65ml of water. Knead, form, and let prove for 90 minutes.

 +==== Recycling your old stale bread ====
 +You can recycle your old stale bread! Dry it out completely (best cut it into little cubes for that), and then mix 1:3 with boiling water. Then add all the salt you would otherwise add to your dough. This mixture is called the "​Brühstück"​. Mix thoroughly, and let sit for 2 - 10 hours (if longer, put it into the fridge), and add to your dough. Don't forget not to put the salt into the dough, as it's already in your "​Brühstück"​.

 +===== 70% Wholegrain Organic Sourdough Bread =====
 +{{::​img_20170312_183128734.jpg?​600|}}
 +==== Starter Dough ====
 +Mix 200g organic wholegrain rye flour with 220ml 40 degree warm water, and add a tablespoon of your sourdough starter. Let sit for 12 to 24 hours, until you have a bubbly starter.
 +==== Main Dough ====
 +Now add 150g strong white flour, 100g wholegrain rye flour, 10g salt and 120ml of water at 40 degrees. Mix until you have a fairly wet dough. Put into your baking tin, and let prove for 4 to 6 hours. Bake at 230 degrees for 5 minutes, lower the temperature to 190, and bake for a further 40 minutes.

 +===== Flax seed and mixed seed rye bread =====
 +It doesn'​t get much healthier. I use milled flax seed, as your body can't digest whole flax seed.
 +==== Starter Dough ====
 +Mix 300g wholegrain rye flour, 60g milled flax seed, 1 good tbsp sourdough starter and 370ml lukewarm water. Let stand for 8 to 14 hours, depending on temperature,​ until you have a nicely risen (twice the volume) starter.
 +
 +==== Main Dough ====
 +Now add 120g wholegrain rye flour, 240g strong white wheat flour, 80g mixed seeds, 15g salt and 240ml lukewarm water. Knead (best done in the mixer), and put into a 1kg loaf tin. Let rise for a good hour, then bake at 230 degrees falling to 190 for 55 minutes.
