Default Diacetyl in my starter.

Hey guys, I made a 1 Liter starter using WLP 001 a few days ago, then put it in my fridge last night to settle the yeast.

I decanted the starter beer off the yeast this morning to check for any off flavors.

I'm definately tasting some diacetyl in it. Is this because the yeast wasn't given a chance to clean up after itself?

Basically, I was just wondering if this is something that will translate into the finished beer, or if the yeast will run it's course in my primary and clean up the diacetyl.

They will clean up their act in a proper fermentation.
