Sourdough starter forgot to add flour

I made a starter for sourdough using yeast and water and have left it out on the counter for 3 days, only to discover I hadn't put the flour in it. Do I dump it or add flour to it?

  1. Yes - dump it out. Leave out the yeast next time around.....just flour and water. Or better yet - rye flour, regular AP flour and water.
