Flour generously, and place each loaf seam side up in a bowl, lined with a couche cloth or a heavily-floured tea towel - without the cloth, your loaf will stick in the bowl and you won't be able to turn it out. Put a few ice cubes or cold water into a baking tin and place in the bottom of the oven to create steam.
Turn the loaves out onto a baking tray or hot baking stone.

As defined above, a levain is composed of a ratio of bacteria and yeast and is essentially flour that has been pre-fermented. Not only does it add flavor complexity to the dough, but it also is the primary agent responsible for making it rise.
The levain is made ahead of time and is separate from the Dough Mix below. Typically you make the levain the night before you plan to mix your dough, but it can also be done really early in the morning. Note that the table below shows the weights for the ingredients only for the final dough mix. In other words, the weight of the flour here will be less than the Total Formula lists above because some flour needs to be used to build the levain, also above. Keep an eye on how your levain is progressing during this time. The photo above is the state of my levain just before going into my dough mix at p.

This gentle turning and pulling motion will develop tension on the top of the dough forming a round circle. Lightly flour the top of your dough rounds and the work surface. Working with one at a time, flip the round so the floured top is now down on the floured work surface. Then, grab the left and right sides of the dough and stretch them away from each other, fold one side over toward the other and repeat with the other side.
Then, grab the top of the circle and stretch away from your body and fold down and over all the way to the bottom of the resting dough. Finally, flip, or roll down the dough so the seams are all on the bottom and using two hands cup the top part of the round and drag the dough gently towards your body. The angle of your hands will gently press the bottom of the dough on the counter creating tension, forming a skin on the top of the dough as you drag. After shaping, let the dough rest on the bench for a few minutes and then place seam-side-up into a towel-lined kitchen bowl that was lightly dusted with white rice flour.
Once covered, let the dough rest on the counter for 20 minutes. During this time overall fermentation will slow, but good bacteria activity will continue, contributing to a more complex flavor and deeper crust coloring.
