I used Reinhart's method for the sourdough starter.  I wholeheartedly credit the 'Fresh Loaf' members for saving my starter, so I had to post the results.  When my starter seemed to have stopped, I found the posted link to Reinhart's correction via this site.  Thankfully, a little aeration saved the day.  The loaves had a great crumb (at least it far surpassed my expectations for a first loaf), and were moderately sour.  May try retarding one loaf next time, and see how that affects the flavor.

Thanks for the feedback...let's just hope it wasn't beginner's luck ;-o  I'll have to see if the ones I bake tomorrow turn out as nice.
