ww sourdough Glezer Essential Columbian a le petit boulanger

i did my own take on maggie glezer's essential columbian that ppl have raved about. i did 50% ww with two over night refrigerated ferments, one bulk ferment and then after shaping the loaves they went back in the refrig for another 16 hours or so.  i just pulled the first one out and it's my first try at a batard.....so the shape is pretty rough.....and i should have split the loaves up into 3 bread as they were too big to fit completey under my new long la cloche that i just got.....so part of them stuck out under the cloche and got a bit chared....but i am proud of the scoring of the first loaf, thanks to cndough who referred me to the scarification videos of le peitit boulanger.

here's first loaf pix.....

taste report: the bread is wonderfully moist, not too sour at all, i guess i'd call it slight - moderately sour w/ good complexity. first bread is history. we cut open the second this morning and it  tasted even better than the first.
