You mentioned a stir plate in your original post so I assumed you were using one.
I don't understand what you mean when you say the fridge would somehow prevent you from decanting the starter. Why would that be?
Your two liter flask will work just fine. By stepping it up I mean to decant the wort, transfer the yeast to another container then make a second starter in the flask using the yeast from the first stage.
