Week 157: Rye sourdough loaf

Apparently using whole grain flour in sourdough “cuts” the delicate gluten strand. Last weekend, after making a small tweak to my formula by sifting out the large whole grains, I finally got an okay-ish looking loaf.

My loaf still spreaded like a splat just before I put it into the oven, making scoring and handling a total pain. Anyone with advices would be much appreciated.
