If you are interested in some awesome sourdough whole wheat English muffins, I have used this recipe by JMonkey many times with great success:

You need to set it up the previous night, but the hands-on time is minimal and they are very easy and rewarding to make.

I've made JMonkey's WW SD muffins using my starter which I normally feed with rye flour and they came out delicious and fluffy. I suspect bread flour would be ok, but you may get some extra chewy muffins closer to pizza crust if you aren't careful.
