Gold Medal Remarkable Bakers Flour for rustic artisan sourdough breads?

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if anyone has used GM Remarkable Baker's Flour for rustic artisan sourdough breads with good success.  It has a 13.6% protein level.

 

I've previously been using Morbread (~12% protein) and i'm concerned that the higher protein will make my crusts too thick.  My current formula uses about 10% whole wheat... i'm loathe to change my formula, as I am currently baking ~100 loaves  a week in my home microbakery and I've got my flow all set.

 

My Morbread source is out, but a local wholesale can get me the GM Remarkable (unbleached/unbromated) for a reasonable price.  Any advice on using this flour?
