Didn't mean to sound like an ass with my post but maybe did. I've switched pretty much 100% to low temp ferment/ rise. Couple of reasons - I like the flavor nuances achievable and we keep our home winter temperature at 62.
Maybe others have worked with raw radish sprouts and have some insight, but wouldn't surprise me if there are compounds or enzymes which may not be dough friendly. Congratulations on experimenting, that's where it's at !!
If radish isn't the culprit, I'd still lean towards timing. Maybe rise and fall of activity level would be a better choice of words than rise and collapse. Most of what I know about bread making has been through observation and experiment, what I see and try to put into words, may not match up with what you read and try to envision. I've definitely learned that wet pre-ferments have a sweet spot.
Ha -- I partially pooched a 6 loaf batch of rustic, yesterday. Was kneading with a dough hook, dough was coming on point, got distracted - Damn, caught it as it was just beginning to break.
Good luck !!
