Default Maltodextrin

Was going to brew a 5 gal batch of porter today and as I was laying all ingredients out saw that I was missing the 4oz of maltodextrin is there anything that I can substitute with or should I just wait until I can get some ? This a extract kit from Morebeer thanks

I believe maltodextrin will only add mouth feel, not fermentables. I wouldn't consider the absent of maltodextrin a show stopper.
