Honestly, for a first ever brew, I wouldn't bother with a starter (I'm sure others will dissent). You can pitch most yeasts onto the wort as long as it's not hot. Or you can simply "wake up" the yeast in some pre-boiled water, cooled to about 30 C. Worry about making your equipment sanitary more than about how incredible your yeast needs to be.
