What size starter is it? If it's not huge you'd be better off to leave it and pitch the whole thing on Sunday. It may not ferment out in 24 hours. The last lager starter I made took 4 days to ferment out.

It's gonna be a 2 liter-starter. Would this be too much to just pitch the whole thing?

Also, it's a 1.055 witbier. Do I even need a starter if I'm using a smack pack?
