    I think Mr. Malty overestimates how much starter we should use, but I believe the reason for this is that it is hard to overpitch yeast at the homebrew level. I also believe underpitching can be overstated as well.

    With that said you are doing just over a 2-liter starter, which is typically the amount of yeast recommended for a five gallon batch of 1.060 wort. So, I am just concerned about the amount of yeast you are using, but I am guessing you are happy with your beer. But, this probably is not good info for new brewers to follow.
