Hi from MI- searching for lo tech sourdough recipe

hello! i joined this site because i recently started growing a sourdough starter.it is all wild yeast (no packaged yeast added) and was made using pineapple juice.


it took a few weeks to get going, but now it is nice and puffy! it's the day before thanksgiving and i need to find a simple 100% whole wheat sourdough recipe. i've read a few on this site but they are tooo high tech for this noob. i don't know anything about % hydration or levain or retarding the bread :-(  any suggestions?? thanks soo much! :-)

I've made "Almost No_Knead Sourdough"  4-5 times in the past month and love the simplicity and flavor.  It can NOT be beat!
