Adding some rye to starter "food' mix

Ive been building a new starter - it is coming along very nicely.  I've been using a "food" mix of 50% WW, 50% BF. I have read that adding a bit of rye will help make it a bit more sour.

Looking for an idea of how much rye to add - a percentage?

Just want to give it a little boost. Ideas?
