you actually want to put it (covered) in the fridge overnight, then decant the liquid off the top and pitch the yeast. Bring it up to your wort, or room temp before you pitch.

As far as I know, you should be good just leaving it until tomorrow when you brew.

If you do put it in the fridge, I would decant the liquid off the top and then let the rest get to room temp before pitching.

This is my opinion and I will let some of the more experienced brewers correct me if I am wrong.

This is correct. Your starter wort is actually really ****ty tasting, and I never felt it should be added into your beer. Folks say that it doesn't affect their beer at all but it doesn't make sense to me.

Decanted wort off the top. Made another starter and added to yeast, seems to be fermenting good! Thanks for the advice..
