Default Starter made early, brewing tonight...

I had planned to brew Mar 21st but other things came up, and I had already smacked my pack of Wyeast Irish Ale. So, I made a starter.

I let the starter go and ferment @ room temp for approx. 48 hours & since then it has been in the fridge with sanitized foil on the mouth.

I plan on brewing tonight - I can just pull this out of the fridge and let it warm to room temp and pitch, right? I plan on pouring off a lot of the wort on top and just pitching the slurry...

Please point out any dumb mistakes I may have made before I get started with the brewing. Thanks!

You'll be fine. Starters are good up to a week or two in the fridge.
