What's the differece between more water % in a starter and more % percentage in the final dough

Hi All,


I have read many thread about starter % hyderation and I'm now trying to understand the relation between the starter % to the sourdough %.


What I'm trying to do is to have a more fluffy/airy crumb in my 1.5 cup rye / 1.5 cup whole / 1.5 cup bread wheat / 200 gr 65% (mix of the three) starter / 2 cups water recipe.


I will try a higher hyderation today but what is the differece between more water % in a starter and more % percentage in the final dough?
