## Very Interesting Factoid

According to my calculations (based on an 808g straight dough), a single teaspoon of water will raise the hydration percentage from 70% to 71%. So, 2 tablespoons of water will raise the percentage from 70% up to 76%. That astounds me how **so little additional water can make such a tremendous difference**.

I am no mathematical genius by a long shot. But I calculate each additional 5g of water increases the hydration by 1%.
