1 Cup rye flour
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 Cups bread flour
½ teaspoon salt

4 ounces Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, heated to 110 degrees
¼ Cup dark corn syrup
6 tablespoons lukewarm water

Combine warm yeast mixture with half of white/rye flour mixture. Beat until smooth.
Add the remaining white/rye flour mixture. Continue to add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough ball. Knead on floured surface 4-5 minutes until smooth. Form into an oblong shape and place in greased 9” x 13” loaf pan.
