You want to make the starter wort around 1.040, so to achieve this you want to use around 3/4 lb of DME.

Awesome! Thanks for the help.

How long prior to the brew should I make the yeast starter?

If you have a stirplate, a day ahead of time, if you are just making a simple unstirred starter, 2-3 days.
