Default Making a starter without DME

I want to make a starter for my next batch that I will be making on Sunday. The problem is, I don't have any extract and LHBS is already closed. Can I make starter wort by steeping some grains? Thanks.

Thanks for reminding me. I meant to start my starter yesterday for Sunday. Now I'll just have to pitch at high kraeusen.
