In a large bowl, stir together the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the salt, wholemeal flour and rye flour. Mix in the bread flour 125g at a time until the dough is not sticky. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl, turning to coat. Set aside to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Punch down the dough and divide into 4 or 5 portions. Form each one into a ball, and let rise again until doubled, about 20 minutes.
Place each ball onto a baking tray and flatten out into an oval 1 1/2 to 2cm thick. Poke holes all over using the tines of a fork. Let rise again until doubled, 20 to 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until browned on the top and bottom. Brush the tops with butter while still warm.
