I'm an official Latvian, I was born in Ogre in 1944. I've always loved Latvian sourdough rye and have been trying to duplicate the taste and texture in the bread machine. To the purist this would not be a true sourdough rye but the taste and texture is very close. You can't taste the beer in it. This bread freezes well and keeps in the refrigerator for a long time without going bad.
