Default Harvested yeast

Went to make a starter this evening from a pilsner yeast I took from the yeast cake of a previous lager.. I think the Mason jar was tightened to soon was bulging slightly from pressure and when I opened it it fizzed up bit and foamed over a bit.. Pitched it into starter tonight should this be okay or what is other people's opinions or experiences with this situation

I cropped a lively yeast once, and it overflowed a touch:

It was fine
