Basic Country Loaf, Tartine Bread

I'd been struggling a bit with overly-moist crumb.  After trying varied and long proofs (which did not significantly improve the crumb), I focused on making sure my levain was fully ripe and my dough properly developed in the bulk rise, plus a full proof step.


Problem solved.
