Default Preping washed yeast

OK, so I have been washing yeast and using it the same day I wash it, but I saved some. It's been in the fridge about 3 weeks, and I'm wondering what I need to do before I use it? Do I just let it warm up and pitch it? If so, how long should it be allowed to warm?

I always make a starter with washed yeast after a week or so. I just warm the jar up for about an hour in a bowl of water.
