Default Pitching ammount for a high ABV ale...

I am going to brew an expected 9% ABV. I would rather use a starter than double pitch just to save 7 bucks. I have made a pretty standard starter a few times in the past (about 1 L or so) so I know what to do on that front. But I will probably need a bigger one for this brew, what would you recommend? How much DME and Water? Basically I need the appropriate quantities for a beer this big.

Thanks

Use this calculator: http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html

Use 1g dme per 10ml, ie, 100g of dme for 1000ml.
