It would be good to be able to add things like malt extract to the starters section, so it can come along with the fermentation ingredients.

Greetings Jec52 - you can add whatever ingredients you like in the recipe forulation screen.  Then the ingredient will be included in the ABV calculation.

Also, if you want to add the extract into the ingredients, but not have it affect the rest of the recipe, you can open up the ingredient on the design box and mark it as 'non-fermentable' so that it will not contribute to the sugars in the recipe and change the potential to 1.000 so that it does not impact the calculation of gravity.
