You can just boil a little water, and stir in the DME. Boil a minute or two, then cool it in an ice bath, or with cold water in the sink. You can then pour it into the fermenter when it's under 80 degrees.
One pound of DME will give you about 11 points, taking the gravity right where you wanted it.
