I dug out the instructions to my pH meter and it indeed does indeed say store in 4. Which makes me wonder where I got to store in 7 or distilled water?? Oh well, thanks for the heads up. I will be buying some storage solution too.

Never had that MDixon. Let us know how it is if you try it.
I did finally sample my bottle of Town Branch. Wow. Very good. Tastes a lot like Noah's Mill with a thinner body. It will be perfect for the warm months ahead. Thanks for the recommendation. For the price, I would not have thought it would be this good.
The only thing about malt extract for starters that is important is to use unhopped extracts.Say what?
I'm just curious because starter instructions I've seen from older books called for hops, presumably to ward off bacteria. I just assumed that was abandoned due to the cost and the fact that good sanitation made it unnecessary.
Edit: I looked at the recipe and that's too much crystal. I'd ditch the black malt too.You need fair amount of crystal and high mash temp for 4.4%abv beer.
