The instructions to make the yeast starter called for 1 cup DME to 1 liter of water.

I wasn't paying attention and started to add the entire 1lb of DME/ Fortunatly I caught myself before I dumped it all in and added 1/2 lb of DME.

The fermentation is going like crazy.

Does it really matter that I put in too much DME?
Tap 1: Belgian Golden
Tap 2: Acid Weizenbock

It's too much DME but it's gonna be OK. I wouldn't worry about it.
