Falling number and diastatic malt

i have obtained a large amount of Bay State Milling organic bread flour. The falling number is quite high (450) so I know I'll need to add diastatic malt. Given this, does anyone have an idea of how much? I bake both sourdough and commercial yeast breads, and prefer high rise loaves with large holes.
