I'm new to sourdough bread also, I used a Bosch mixer, mixing enough for two loaves in it.  It rose pretty good in the loaf pan but when I cut the top it deflated.  It tasted great though.

Also, I was reading about hydration, how to calculate that.  I just added the amounts listed in recipes it didnt mention hydration.

Bonlou what recipe are you using just for curiosity and the type of flour you are using just to see how it compares to what I am using.
