Yeast? Why are you putting YEAST into a sourdough bread??? Yuck! That will destroy the yummy sourdough twang and it's totally not necessary. Too much flour, not enough starter. 2.5 cups flour, whole cup of starter. 1 c water, maybe a smidge more. A teaspoon of salt is plenty. Get kinky and add 1/8 cup finely chopped fresh rosemary. :) I need to write up my "how to" on this. I did print out your process for the dutch oven no-knead bread and have fluffed it a bit and merged with some stuff from King Arthur. Seriously - no yeast!!! Ick ick ick!!!
