I'm making a Hobgoblin clone and have two packets of Nottingham Dry Ale yeast that came with the ingredient kits (2 2.5 gallon kits). I also don't have a stir plate.

I have Muntons Dark DME. How should I mix this for my starter?

Should I use both yeast packets right away or one and step it up/add more DME after fermentation slows?

You don't need to make a starter with dried yeast, just rehydrate and use.

No need for a starter with dry yeast. I just sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort and let it o. Some prefer to "proof" the yeast first by adding it to 90* water and waiting 30 minutes or so till it gets foamy. As long as it's foamy it's good to pitch.
