Wholewheat sourdough


hi there I want to try the sourdough starter recipe but actually I live in nepal and can't find rye flour. Is it suitable to use the same measurements with wholeweat flour instead?

Read the history of sourdough.  Most any wheat flour will make sourdough.  It is very forgiving.  I am not sure why you are looking for rye flour.  It is even difficult to find in America, its around but most sourdough is wheat or spelt or amy numbers of different flours.  You might want to look at Breadtopia.com.  very good site with tutorials for a beginner.
