Way to go Phil, you messed it up didn't you! :o
It's fine; the hooch is normal, stir it in, feed, proof & your good to go. ;)

I usually use 5% of total dough weight.  This calculator should make life real easy for you.  http://www.pizzamaking.com/preferment_calculator.html

Typically about 18-20 hours @ 68-72 degrees.  You have to keep an eye on it.  @ then about 4-5 hour individual rise prior to using.
