It might not be such a big deal to skip the starter. Others may disagree, but I have made many beers that have fermented fully in less than 3 days without starters.
I am making a honey wheat, recipe is as follows:
4lb can Wheat Malt
2lb Wheat DME
1oz Cascade Pellets
I got it at a not-so-local-HBS this past weekend, the yeast is in a non-descript white packet that only says (Dried Brewing Yeast 003-504801) on it.
I'm also interested just incase I have an emergency situation where I need a last minute substitute. Super Duper Edit
I just read this thread about Maltahttp://beeradvocate.com/forum/read/991949
It seems pretty awesome, living in Harlem I think I have about 10 stores in a 3 block radius that sells that stuff. I'll go pick some up tomorrow and let you guys know how my starter turns out.
