not necessarily. It depends on whether or not you have enough yeast to pitch in each mason jar for the given wort(s). People here are always recommending mrmalty.com's yeast rate calculator, but I've never used it....I just make starters most of the time. That said, when I've run long and the starter has fermented out, I'll stick it in the fridge, and then take it out when I begin my brewday and swirl it whenever I think about it while it warms up....last time I did this my lag time was less than 6 hours with a full starter from the fridge.
