I was poking around and found this recipe on Mother Earth News but I am too impatient to wait that long (like, all day!) for bread.   I made it once, nearly following the recipe, but forgot it rising all night when I oughtn’t have waited quite that long.  It was very flat.  And it didn’t take as long to brown–so it was a little over-browned for my tastes.  But it did taste pretty good. So then I remade it with pretty much my regular bread recipe, and mixed it up in my bread maker and when it was partway through the second rise I dumped it into a big heavy pyrex bowl and oiled it and covered it with a big heavy ceramic plate and let it rise again.  Then I baked it mostly as directed (covered for 30 minutes in a HOT over, I used around 450 instead of 475, then uncovered it for another 5-10 minutes to brown).  Pretty good crust!  Nice and moist.  Can’t decide if it is worth repeating…
