As my first all grain I did a no boil berliner weiss. Do to my being sparge happy I ended up with 6 gallons of 1.025 wort in my Carboy after pitching a starter from sour dough I was planning on pitching the yeast tomorrow. Should I add sugar then to get the gravity up to the equivalent of 1.030?

You certainly could add 1/2 lb of wheat DME, but you are only .003 below the range (so I would probably leave it as is).
