Let me preface this by saying I know simple sugar starter = bad.

But it turns out I'm a bit short on DME and I was planning on making two starters for two beers I'm brewing this weekend. The packs have been smacked and are starting to swell already. I've got about 4-5 oz of DME, some corn sugar, and yeast nutrient.

Question:
If I add 4 oz of sugar to the 4oz of DME and the appropriate amount of yeast nutrient, then split that between the two starters, do you think I'd be ok? Or should I just go with a very low OG starter?

Thanks.

Sorry to be one of those who keep posting looking for an answer, but the clock is ticking. Any thoughts?

It's not ideal but you should be ok with that plan.

Yeah, not ideal; I messed up. But I'll give it a go.
