Gersterbrot…not quite yet
Gersterbrot is a rye based bread that is treated with a blowtorch before its final proof. I slavishly followed a recipe from a website (pdf-link), sticking to the principle of not futzing around wiith a recipe at first try. The crust was good but the quantitiy of rye flour of 80% paired with a low hydration of only 63% did not quite produce a loaf like one displayed in the pdf-file. The bread tastes good though, albeit being dense. My plan is to do another one as soon as this one has been eaten.
