Making a yeast starter is always a good idea... When you say all extract brew, do you mean to say that you didn't use any specialty grains even for just steeping? It's fine, I suppose, if you didn't; but steeping specialty grains will vastly improve the flavor and complexity of your beer, and allow you to replicate a greater variety of styles, and it takes very little effort. But I perhaps I'm just misunderstanding what you meant by "all extract"...
