Adding carrot to rye bread recipe

hi there

i have a really good recipe for a light rye bread but want to add carrot to it but am wondering about hydration levels. It has 325g strong bread flour and 150g rye and 375g coffee (coffee really works by the way) but I love carrot in it - rye, carrot and caraway work really well together. I was going to add 60g gratef carrot. My question is will I leave hydration as is or cut back a bit? Thanks
