Thanks for all the feedback. I ended up making at 1500 ml starter using the yeast in my pic. I made the starter on a Friday evening and it took around 24 hours to get going. I brewed Sunday and pitched the entire 1500 ml starter and visible fermentation was evident within 4-5 hours. Glad I made the starter.

I've had much better results doing a starter with washed yeast (versus no starter), usually 1000ml-1500ml. After reading Jamil's Yeast book, I've never gone over 3 weeks before repitching. 5 months, wow, that's gutsy.

There are other points of view also...
