My starter for my porter that is now fermenting away nicely did the same thing as your's, WSB. No real krausen, only some small bubbles visible. I pitched last night around 10pm and when I woke up this morning there was already a very active fermentation. You can never quite predict what your beer or yeast will do. As long as the resulting product is still beer, it's all good.
