A recipe for baguette says 2 cups of water to 20 ounces of flour (2.5 cups), but this ratio turns out like batter. Help?

How do I make this into dough? Is this correct?

Just did the math and assuming 4.5 ounces per cup of all-purpose flour, 20 ounces is just under 4 1/2 cups. However, this changes with different types of flour since different flours have different densities and different weights per cup as a result.
