Lol ya I doubt any that you get will be anywhere close but that was just an example. I would maybe save the liquid yeast for the next brew when you can do a starter and sub in a dry yeast.

Here is a link to the yeast calc I use http://www.brewersfriend.com/yeast-p...er-calculator/

Oh and if you have never used a blow off tube you will quickly learn that pitching the correct amount of yeast will cause you to need one, I learned the hard way lol!
