Mellow Bakers in Januari - Part 2

And here they are the three breads for the Mellow Baker challenge (baking through the Hamelman book "Bread") that were supposed to be baked last month, but due to a rye starter that was determined to stay dead, it took me some time to make a new one. And just baked these all at once. (including 2 vollkorn breads and a black bread, that are 'future' breads for the Mellow Baker, but I just wanted to be sure and use this active starter while it lasts)
What can I say.... no not my kind of bread, to sour, to much rye flour and well just not my kind of loaves... oh I already said that. The difference is minor for me, I can't say I love the 70% a little better than the 90% one.
But considering all that, I was pleased with how they turned out, I've had worse examples before with rye sourdoughs. So they're all sliced up in the freezer and in my christal ball I forsee a sourdough bread future for my husband these coming weeks.......

   3-stage 70% sourdough rye,                       3-stage 80% sourdough rye,                         3-stage 90% sourdough rye

I love sour and rye, I could come over and help you eat them!
They look great to me, kudos to you for baking them even though you prefer other types of bread. You must be a Virgo too. ☺
