Ingredients
  Water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Dry yeast 1 Teaspoon
  Sourdough starter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Whole wheat flour 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Unbleached flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Directions

1. Combine water and yeast until bubbly. Do not stir.
2. Combine sourdough starter, whole wheat flour, sugar, and salt with yeast mixture. Stir until smooth, about 3 minutes. Let sit until double in bulk.
3. Add baking soda and unbleached flour. Knead about 5 to 8 minutes on a floured surface.
4. Shape into 2 round or oblong loaves and place on a nonstick baking sheet. Cover; let rise until double in bulk.
5. Brush with 1 tablespoon water and 1 egg white which have been lightly beaten together.
6. Bake at 400° for 40 to 55 minutes with a shallow pan of water on the bottom shelf of the oven. The additional moisture will create a crisp crust on the bread.
