HYDRATION TABLE

I put together this Chart to help those that have a problem understanding or figuring out hydration percentages for different size batches of dough.

Hope this helps.

Imperial Measurements

For those that do not have a scale,

you can use the following as a guideline.

The following is based on the high protein
bread flour that I use.

Weighing by grams is more accurate
because there is variation in the weight of flour, 
so this is approximately what you will 
need for a batch of dough at 75% Hydration.

6 1/2 cups flour
3 1/2 cups of water
1 1/4 teaspoons yeast
4 teaspoons salt
