Can I make a starter using the liquid from the last little bit of all grain mash tun run off? I boiled it for 20 mins and threw it into my yeast starter. Anyone think this is genius, or horrible idea!

You're fine - I usually pressure can the last bit of wort from the dead space in mash tun for starters. As long as the gravity was reasonable, RDWHAHB.
