Trying something new... Sourdough Artisan Bread

Oftentimes I feel inadequate. 
Like right now.
I'm a bit worried.
I'm trying something new.
You know how I have made the 5 minute Artisan bread before?
Well, today I mixed up a batch with sourdough starter...
Will, it work?
Stay tuned to find out.

In my mind, I see NO reason why it shouldn't work just dandy.
But this is a first and I will tell you...
 YES! It worked great.
 NO! It was a big, fat, failure. 
I will give you truth here.

Here's the ratio I used, figuring I might get 3-4 smallish loaves of bread if this works.
1/2 cup sourdough
4 1/2 cups warm water
9 cups white flour 
1 Tablespoon salt

Mix til just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit 12-24 hours. 
I plan on using this just like how I make my Artisan bread.
