Crusty GFCF artisan bread?

Shauna aka the Gluten Free Girl posted a lovely recipe for a gluten-free artisan boule bread - the recipe happens to be dairy free as well - which I've been meaning to try it out. I can count on one hand the number of times I've made from-scratch yeast bread, and I didn't have one of the main ingredients on hand, but I STILL didn't manage to screw up this recipe. It's actually really simple, no-knead, and you could easily make this without a Kitchen-Aid. And the result? ohmylord.

Since I'd run out of brown rice flour, I substituted 1/2c millet, 1/2c teff, and 1/4c sweet rice This, according to my math, added up to the same weight as 1c brown rice flour, though higher in protein. If you're a by-weight baker, the weights I used were: 158g brown rice (or my subs); 102g sorghum, 180g tapioca. I also left by bread to rise and rest longer than called for. These changes weren't willful; just the way it worked out. My bread turned very dense and moist with very small bubbles, a great crunchy crust (not super-thick) and wonderful sourdough-like flavor. I can only imagine the results if I would've followed directions ;)
