How much DME/Water for 1000ml starter?

I have a Wyeast Propagator of 1056. I only have a 1000ml flask(not 2000ml) so I followed the directions to do it in 2 steps. I've since thrown away the package and forgot how much water-to-dme to use. I have the 1000ml flask in the fridge now. I was going to decant, and add another 1000ml of wort. Anyone know the ratio? I think its 3/4cups DME to 1000ml. But that seems like WAY to much DME.

I have no easy way to weigh 100 Grams. Is there a measuring cup size that is closest to this? Would it be 1 Cup?

Thanks!

Volume is not an accurate way to measure DME. The best thing to do is to add DME until you reach about 1.035 OG.

+1 - but 1/2 cup DME in a quart of water will get you pretty close. I love my scale! :wink:

1/2 cup of DME per 16oz of water will give you aprox 1.080 gravity in your starter.

That's a well-known error in How to Brew.

That's ounces as in the unit of mass. The weight of 1 fluid ounce varies depending on the density.
