Hi, Everyone.
I want to make King Arthur Flour's Honey Oat Pain de Mie, but want to
add maybe a quarter cup of sunflower seeds to the mix. How much more
water should I add to make sure the dough is hydrated enough?

Here's the ingredient list for a 9x4 Pullman loaf:

For 9x4 loaf:
12 3/4 ounces King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
3 ounces old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 ounces melted butter
2 1/4 ounces honey
8 to 9 ounces lukewarm water*
*Use the smaller amount in the summer, or in a humid climate; the
larger in winter, or in a drier climate.
