Default Under primed

I was making a yeast starter and priming sugar on my stove at the same time and used the yeast starter as the priming sugar. It was 1/2 cup of DME used to prime a 4 gallon batch of wit. I did this a couple days ago should i just let it go? Will it carb up eventually?

the dme will take a bit longer than the sugar you were supposed to use.

Im wondering, did you pitch your yeast on the sugar water before you realized what was going on? Id love to know how that ended up.

Both the yeast starter and the priming mixture were made with DME.

I think you're gonna be ok here.

Check out this calculator:
http://tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html

1/2 cup of DME is roughly 3 oz by weight. Plugging 4 gallons into the calc and adjusting volume to get to 3oz DME, you're looking at ~1.7 volumes...low, but not terrible.
