Was the wort too hot? Or just the starter wasn't bubbling yet? If the former, you'll need some more yeast. If the latter, it ought to take off itself, slowley. Or add some more yeast. Either way, no harm unless wild beasties get in. You did remember to boil? sanitize?
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had brewing....you don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?
72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
