Default Middle of a brew question!!! help

OK - I have a extract recipe where I converted .7lb of Munich extract into AG but kept the LME.

PROBLEM - I FORGOT I did a steep instead of a MASH with the 1lb of Munich Grain.

SO - I figure I'll NOT get the sugar but WILL get the flavor.

Can I just add some Extra light DME to bump the gravity up a tad without adding way too much flavor??

suggestions? Leave it alone> (which is a totally viable solution)

You could just add around 10 oz of DME to replace the sugar content that the Munich would have added.

You won't get much flavor or body from steeping Munich though, just a lot of starch.

You arn'tgoing to get much out of that munich but need the sugar. Add the 10oz of extra light and RDWHAHB
