Default Starter with current wort

I want to make a yeast started for this beer
but i have no DME, Since i dont have a wort
chiller it will be hours till i can add my yeast,
maybe even over night, could i quickly chill
some of the wort from this beer and begin a
starter in it before i added it to the beer
itself?

Im using White Labs yeast BTW. California Ale.
Their website says only 4-6 hours for a starter.

You could certainly do that and it wouldn't hurt anything. Just be very, very sanitary.

I did it by the way, worked out fine and
had my ale bubbling away in 4 hours.
Hell of an improvement over my Tripel
not starting for about 24hr.

By the way, Fuquay? is that pronounced
like Bouquet with an F?

No, it's more like few-quay (rhymes with way). There are actually many local imaginative ways to pronounce it, especially when combined with imaginitive ways of pronouncing Varina.

True, but their website says it won't hurt to make a starter, it pisses me off when my ferment dosnt start in about 5 hours so i gotta have something to speed it up. Also i cant aerate well in a 5 gal carboy so I thought if the yeast went through the oxygen building time in a enviroment that was oxygen rich, it would help.

I ask about the Fuquay thing because my last name is Fuqua, I pronounce it the same way you do, i thought the bouquet thing would work better because thats the way most people say it. The y makes it seem a little altered, looks out of place. i heard the orignal spelling of my last name was Fouquet. pronounced in french, my haritage, would sound like Few-quay or Fuqua.

That's what they advertise, but even the XL Wyeast packs are underpitching 5g of wort based on what most literature recommends as 1 million cells / ml wort / degree plato. Here's a pretty nifty calculator which shows how many smack packs or vials would be required for a given volume at a given SG:
