Combine the rest of the water, flour, rye flour, honey, butter, salt, and yeast mixture using a stand mixer with a dough hook. Knead for approx. 10 min. until an elastic dough forms. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place for approx. 1 h or until the dough has doubled in volume.
750 g water / 750 g bread flour / 375 g rye flour / 20 g honey / 15 g butter / 30 g salt
Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F. When dough has finished rising, knead by hand on a floured surface until smooth. Divide dough and form loafs approx. the width of a stretched out hand in diameter. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for approx. 30 min. When the dough has doubled in volume, make a crosswise incision in the top. Transfer to preheated oven. Place a baking dish filled with water on the bottom rack. Bake the bread for approx. 30 – 40 min. until the crust is golden. Set aside to cool.
