These are measured by volume and may be a bit different. I don't think it will make much difference though.
One ounce (volume) of water is about one ounce (weight).
DME is much less dense than water, though.
I use 1/3 cup of DME per pint of starter.
The weight will vary a little, but it's about 2 ounces.
