I no longer live in the area, but there is a LHBS near 50 and 176 in Libertyville. Nice little place, I'll use them again when I get out of the Navy.

Sounds good, I'd go for Mark's number of 3.5L and don't forget to make your starter gravity about the same as your Roche's 1.075 since you probably wont have time to pour the starter 'beer' off.
