How many water's of hydration does triethylammonium bromide have?

I am doing something where I need to measure the number of moles of solid triethylammonium bromide, but I don't know how many water of hydration, if any, this salt has. I will be evaporating it from water, and then drying it in a desiccator, so I need to know how many waters of hydration it has. I searched online but I couldn't find anything. Does anyone know how many waters of hydration this salt has?

I don't know, but perhaps you could measure it. Dissolve a known mass, and then try to measure the concentration somehow. For example you could precipitate bromide with a silver salt and weigh it.
