Sourdough Rye Bread with a whole wheat starter

I am a happy baker today - my first all sourdough loaf of bread worked out pretty well.  It's a 50-50 rye/AP flour loaf with orange zest, fennel, caraway and anise seeds.  The recipe is from .  It spread out somewhat in the oven even though it was proofed in a brotform.  I'm guessing that's why the author of the recipe baked his in a clay cooker.  Here is picture of the loaf once out of the oven.  I'll post crumb once cooled.

I've heard it said, "All the World loves a happy baker." First sourdough loaf? Great job! Now that you've started sourdough what to do with all those bigas, poolishes and sponges. :-)

I had some really great sourdough rye that a guy brought to a potluck last week and from what he told me of the recipe I think this is the same!  ( I didn't write  his recipe down at the time. )

I found that breadtopia recipe at .  Thanks!
