1084 is the standard for a stout. 1028 is fine too...

"brewing sugar"?

i've always heard that you should use malt extract for the starter. there are reasons for this.

+1 on malt extract. Usual reasoning is that you don't want to train your yeast on simple sugars... Ruins their appetite for the real meal.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
