I was hoping for a little more open crumb. However this is fluffy, not dense at all. Very good bread.

sandwich loaf - and I bet it tastes fantastic.  The combination and ratio of grains is one of the best, and I bet that sour biga adds a good bit to the overall result, too. 

Nice job, and thanks for sharing!
