Default hom much dme raised 5 gal .003

Just got done and have a little over 5 gal at 1.043 and want to get to 1.047. Ideas on how much light DME and H2O to use. Want H20 volume a little under 32 oz.
Thanks

If you're set on using 32 oz of water, then 11 oz DME in 32 oz water will get you up to 5.25 gal @ 1.047
No need to use that much water, unless you want it for some other reason. 8 oz of DME in enough water to dissolve will get you there too.

thankx guys. just want about 32 oz to get around 5.25 gallons so can fill a keg after primary and secondary. I fly sparge and did a repeat recipe, but went through vourlauf/sparge process at 2x speed experimenting on saving time and ended up a little on the light side of o.g. going to mix reponses at 10 LDME to 26 oz H2o and let it roll out!
