I like my dry yeasties
I understand because every question regarding problems with different brew sessions I have ever asked other homebrewers has always been immediately responded with 'did you make a starter?' or 'how big of a starter did you make?' as far as research goes I just went back through my homebrew library and read all of the chapters on yeast propagation I had skipped previously. Then googled yeast propagation. Then searched YouTube for yeast propagation. As far as experience goes in my OP I stated that I am new to starters, so I have none. I'm not big on intuition, usually just gets me into trouble.
