It's sort of like what they use to make things like that! lol The method in this bread combines 2 c rye flour, 1 1/2 c water, and 1 tsp yeast and lets it sit, covered, for 3 days. It is quite sour by then, and alcoholic. The original recipe called for 1 tb active dry yeast - the norm, back then, but 1 tsp of instant yeast will do the same, since there is a much higher % of live cells, compared to the old stuff. And, though it says up to three days before bake day, I always do it for 3 days - gives the most flavor.

As for your other question about where to get WW bread flour, there are many online sources for this, and health food places, as taxlady noted, often have it, usually selling in the bulk food section. Often, however, they are quite expensive, which is why I often add some white bread flour, in small amounts, to regular WW flour. I have a grain mill, and in the winter I make my own, grinding some hard red wheat berries, which I got a deal on, but even those can cost more than WW flour.
