Default Quick Mr. Malty/Starter Question

Earlier this week I washed some yeast from a stout I transferred. I was able to get some great yeasties to reuse and wanted to make a starter to ensure they are ready to go. Here's how I determined how much slurry to use:



So I went with about 90mL. My question: How big of a starter would you have made? I went with 1qt water/1cup DME and pitched the yeast around 70F. Things took off last night and still appear to be going. I'm hoping to brew tomorrow. Thoughts?
