A Cucumber pickle juice rye Bread

It's Not a mistake, really not - A Cucumber pickle juice rye Bread !
It's a simple sour rye bread, the souring comes from the cucumber pickle juice (which I made freshly this week).The recipe is taken from Dan Lepard's Cookbook : The Handmade Loaf.Here is Dan's web site [ previously recipes from this Cookbook are Here : Chelsea buns , and the Simple milk loaf ]; I've got 2 small loafs, very dark brown and not too sour.The use of toasted rye flour is very interesting , you have to spread the flour in a thin layer over a baking sheet and bake it until it's "tannish brown", then adding strong flour, salt, yeast, the cucumber pickle juice and fresh dill- ( I didn't add the dill). I didn't get the "polished oak crust" as shown in the Cookbook ,But I tried.. [you have to cook a strach paste, and then brush the loafs with it ,15 minutes before finishing the baking.Here are some pictures, How I made my rye Bread. [On left in the large photo is the Turkish Pide Bread , and the Rosemary Rolls -panini di ramerino and 2 slices of the Cucumber pickle juice rye Bread ].Feel free to enlarge every pic and thanks for reading my new kitchen experience :-)
