Yeast starter

Last night I made a 2 quart starter for tomorrow's batch of Centennial pale ale.  The yeast is Wyeast 1272.  I use 2 cups of dry malt extract in 2 quarts of water.  I like to start it two nights before the brew day then put it in the fridge the night before brewing, so that I can pour off the starter beer and pitch the yeast cold into the new wort.
