75/25 white/wholemeal split sour dough loaf

This was adopted from a recipe I found on youtube, but I just tweaked it myself, its 75% White Spelt Shipton Mill, with 25% wholemeal Shipton Mill stone ground flour. 73% Hydration with extra sesame seeds and some mixed seeds. Its a perfect loaf with great flavour and taste, the seeds work nicely too.
