“Oh my goodness - I'm reading some of these reviews and I just realised that Americans and British are used to that fluffy white bread - this is a GERMAN recipe - it IS A DENSE BREAD - THIS IS NOT A LIGHT & FLUFFY BREAD Please don't expect this to come out tasting like "Wonder bread" with Rye flavor. This is a recipe for TRUE, AUTHENTIC Rye bread - it's going to taste different from what you buy packaged in the store that was mass produced in a factory, please remember that. Just wanted to let everyone know before you invest money and time into this what to expect. Thanks!”
