What forumla/recipe are you using?

Without more info., I can only guess:

Start with 22% (not of total weight, but of total flour weight).

For example, if your bread contains 1000 g of flour, use 220 grams of seeds.

Seeds absorb water, so consider increasing hydration/water as you increase seed.
