First attempt at sourdough

This is my first attempt at a rye sourdough. I followed the levain directions in Dan Leader's Bread Alone. I made the Caraway Rye listed in the book, but I always use 100% whole wheat flour instead of the 20% bran flour. Of all the breads I have made, this one came out the best I believe. It had a nice oven spring.

This really looks nice and baked perfectly. I'll bet it was delicious. How much caraway does it call for?
