i've been baking for 5 months - been keeping this starter alive - even took it with me during the big hurricanes - and finally it get it right - it needed to be overly wet!

beautiful, open crumb, too. looks like you had a nice, slack, well-hydrated, wet dough. i need to make moister doughs ithink. most of the loaves i make end up with rather dense crumbs. while i dont mind it at all (neither do my "eaters") i want to master control over theoutcomes more effectively.
