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.
