Default yeast emergency

I just smacked my pouch about 3hrs. ago and it is swollen tight. my previous bad luck with these things is why I smacked early even though i wont be brewing until tommorow. should i put it back in the fridge till tommorow bc i prob wont be read to pitch until like 12 or more hours

Stick it back in the refrigerator, it will be fine.

Best choice...boil up a 1/2 quart of water with a 1/2 cup of DME and cool and toss in the yeast. USe a large apple juice jar.

Next best...just let it sit over night.

Stick it in the fridge and pull it out a couple hours before pitching.

+1 to BierMuncher's comment. IF you've got the DME, go ahead and pitch it to a starter, it'll help build up your yeast count and improve your lag time quite a bit.
