I am happy with the results. As long as I have the time I don't mind the steps. I am moving on to a 331/3% Whole wheat bread just added the last of the dry ingredients. She will ferment over night for a morning bake. Same formula just substituted 200G of the white  flour to whole wheat . So far looks like I will have to adjust with a bit more flour. I hope the texture is not like vinyl LOL.

Looks wonderful!

For me to be able to follow your recipe can you re-arrange your recipe to baker's percentages? So...

Flour 100% (excluding starter) and everything else in relation to that.

You'll find bakers writing a formula in a few different ways. Most commonly is the way I've described but others might add another table and break everything down into flour and water including the starter.

So they will give you Flour + Water + Salt as table "A".

Then... Flour + Water + Salt + Starter as table "B".

Flour always being 100%. However you've amalgamated the two tables.

Great looking loaves though.
