Calculating Hyrdration


Howdy.  I am new to the whole baking bread thing and want to make sure I am calculating my hydration correctly.

  • 300g  Bread Flour
  • 150g  Whole Wheat F
  • 296g  Water
  • 15g   Salt
  • 154g  Starter (100% hydation)
  • 915g  Total Weight

My Math:  Starter divided by Two and add number to Water & Flour

Water (296+77) / Flour (300+150+77) = 72% Total Hydration


If this is wrong could someone help me understand my error? 

Thank you!
