The amount of dark DME you would use to make a starter shouldn't affect it much if any at all. (Depending on the size of your starter).

Its 1 qt. , pretty small.....I'll probably just do it, everything is ready, just waiting for the wort to cool a couple more degrees.

First time using a smack pack also.

It won't hurt anything.
