I'd use 1.5 of grain in 3 quarts of water, and then sparge with another two quarts and boil. That should give you a liter, more or less, of 1.040 wort. If my math is right.

I think you meant a gallon, in which case that sounds about right.

Ok so 1.5 lbs for a gallon of water?

So maybe half that amount for 2 liters?

Oh, yes- a gallon. A one liter starter is very small! You could cut my malt/water in half for about 2 liters, though!
