Has anyone made rye bread? Im wanting to try a loaf, but the recipes I am seeing are varying by so much, I havent been able to settle on a simple recipe to start with. And who knows,I may not be able to find rye flour in my grocery, but Id still like to try. Any recipes or tips?

Bob's Red Mill says rye needs the vital wheat gluten, 1 Tablespoon per 2 cups of flour.

I will try that. I do have the vital wheat gluten, so I will add some of that.

OH NO!  You may need less rye and more bread flour.  When I use sturdier grains, I also add vital wheat gluten (baking aisle).  When I'm grinding my whole wheat, I throw in a few Vitamin C capsules, but you can also crush them with a mortar and pestle or smash them with a heavy pan.  They serve as a dough conditioner.  If you have a source, some lecithin is a great dough conditioner, use a couple of teaspoons.

Fail on the rye. Im not sure why. It was dense and had bad flavor. I will try again though. I hate dense bread! Grr.

Thank you for the recipes! I appreciate you taking the time to type it up!! I found rye flour at our store, so I am going to give it a go within the next week. The oldest starts kindergarten, so I should have a bit of time.
