I think my 5 qt. dutch oven is too small

I have been making Jim lahey's No Knead Bread.  When I half the recipe the bread has a great rise and large irregular holes.  But when I do the full recipe it does not.

I am thinking that it does not have enough room to rise and spread out, or am I wrong?

Anybody else.............
