comment *Cannot* get that “Oven Spring”
I wonder what the experts here think about this method of managing steam. I would guess that because modern ovens are designed to vent steam that you might be losing it as fast as you are creating it. I'd consider some options for trapping steam.

comment Tartine + Sourdough Taste
Congratulations on creating a picture perfect loaf. But I had to chuckle a little at your comment because, in my opinion, comparing Tartine bread to Boudin bread is like comparing a Lamborghini to a Fiat. Yes, they both come from the same region, but only one of them is a lovingly crafted divine work of art.

comment How to get uniform bubbles in simple dutch oven bread?
To clarify my comment more. To me, those bubbles indicate you are doing everything correctly. If this reference is accurate artisanbakers.com/crumb.html I wonder if your hydration is accidentally higher than 72% and I wonder if lowering your hydration would help?

Would lowering the hydration help?

comment Can I substitute a stainless steel pot for the traditional iron dutch oven?
I don't know the answer. I wouldn't be worried about the bread. I'd be worried about the stainless steel. Higher end stainless steel pots are often oven safe for high temperatures and lower end stainless steel pots are often not.

comment How do I deal with a really wet, messy dough?
Try keeping your hands wet when handling your dough for everything leading up to shaping your loaf. When you are ready to shape your loaf switch to flouring your hands.
