Ratio of starter in pate fermentee??

I'm trying my hand at converting one of PR's recipes and am wondering how much starter I would use instead of yeast to build a pate fermentee?  He uses only 1/2 teaspoon of instant yeast to make a 65% hydration pate fermentee.  He makes 3 cups of pate fermentee to make one batch of French bread.
