Mix the Rye levain together with the autolysed part using kitchenaid or any other dough mixer.

Keep kneed it about 10-12 min.

it won't come together as other regular will be sticky.

Using an touch oil shape to random ball shape, place back to the kitchen aid bowl what is been slightly oiled.

Knock it down the dough on the floured board and shape the dough to fit in your proofing basket/ bannatone.
