Jim lahey's no knead bread recipe in 3 qt pot?

Hello. I am excited to baking bread and I am going to start with the no knead recipe in Jim lahey's book My Bread. 

has anyone tried making it in a 3qt Dutch oven? The recipes online vary from recommending anywhere from a 4.5-5.5 qt up to a 6-8 qt. 

 

thank you so much! :)

I make Lahey's basic recipe (400g flour) in a 3 quart pot all the time, the Martha Stewart 3 quart Dutch oven from Macy's. It is the perfect size, allowing the loaf to rise high to form a perfect boule.
