A lot of people dont recommend using 3711 since its a beast of a yeast. You dont need to do a starter for this yeast. Just pitch it direct, or underpitch Wyeast quantity. 3711 will eat thru all the sugars in 2-3 days anyways.
My suggestion is to goto Northern Brewer since you are local. They have 3 sour recipes that you can pick from and I'm sure all your questions can be answered in the store.
Old school or the new, doesnt mean a thing if your heart's not true!
