It's been a while since I've made a starter, and my hydro. is broke. About how much DME should I add to a 1 Liter starter to get the right gravity. I seems to recall around 1 oz. but really can't remember.

10mL / 1g DME

or for a 1 L starter use 100g DME

Use light DME and you'll hit around 1.040 which is what you want for your starter
