Default Question about a yeast starter

I made a yeast starter this past Friday morning. Meant to brew over the weekend, but ended up not being able to. Should it still be good to go tonight, or is there something I should do to kick start it?

It should be fine. If you have wait a few more days I'd decant off the lquid and add some more extract to it and get it going again.

You are just fine.

After all, you basically made a weak beer.

RAHAHB.
