    Hi, Jim, Your loaf looks good! How does it taste?  Your starter looked very happy!

    I also find the larger loaf to proof more slowly than when I tested it as a smaller loaf.  Ambient temperature makes a difference. I’m finding it takes 4 hours when proofed at 75-78dF, and an hour longer when proofed at 66dF.  You can retard in the fridge and finish proofing in the morning if that schedule works better for you.
