Rev 1.0 web-based hydration calculator

I like to "do my own thing" with flour, water, salt, and sometimes yeast.  This means that I often need to figure out hydration levels of a dough with 1 or 2 pre-ferments.  I could do it, usually, but it pushed the bounds of my arithmatic skills.  My husband wrote a javascript hydration calculator for me.  I use it all the time.  Perhaps someone else will find it useful as well.

You're very welcome Mark.  I'm glad that you find it helpfil.  If there are improvements that you think of, don't hesitate to suggest them.

The very thing. Thanks for developing this. Anything other than good round numbers in hydration was making my brain cramp. This is a big help.   Daisy_A
