Default What to do with leftovers?

I ordered a AHS British Pale Ale kit yesterday (mini-mash). I have done this one before and liked it pretty well. I have about a 1lbs of LME left over from a quadrupal I did a few months ago (starter for yeast) - think I could just toss the LME in the mix since it's just getting old in the bag? Mm?

you can use it for a starter.

Go for it. One pound shouldn't affect the overal beer but will increase the malt profile and obvously increase your ABV%.

If you're wanting to do a dead-on clone, you'll need to add some addtional hops to counter the extra malt.

sure, use it for a starter and if you want to use the rest to boost your ABV, go for it...
