Default Mixing dry yeast with liquid yeast starter, ok or no?

I want to brew a tripel that calls for a 2.4 liter starter. I have 2 jars of washed Wyyeast 1762. The problem is I only have two 1L flasks and one stirplate. I was thinking that I could make a 1L starter and pitch that with a packet of Fermentis T-58. Is this just crazy thinking? Anybody ever mixed dry yeast with liquid at pitching? Is T-58 even any good for a tripel?

I've had good result with T-58 for Belgians. Never tried it in a cocktail before.

Do you think that 1 packet would be enough for a 1.081 beer? Or do you think that a liter starter of 1762 would be better?

Dunno bout the 1762. Been 2.5 year since I used liquid.

For 1.081 I'd do two T-58 and let it go hot. 75*F maybe near 80*F if controlled.

That's my problem, I only have one of each. Hate to make the 120 mile round-trip to the lhbs. Maybe I'll mix them and make brewing history

Bump for additional input to see if I am making a big mistake!
