Characteristics

It is brown to rye gray, It takes about 3 to 6 hrs to be ready I put it in the oven with the oven light on. Last build it was more sour tasting that usually I think it was because of the rye. I use Heritage wheat or rye but this has been only about the last six months and Bengt is about 2 years old
