Campden tablets are regularly used this way in wine making. In addition to their usefulness as a water treatment, campden tablets are good at eliminating wild yeasts and bacteria in unfermented juice/wort.
That said, I agree, pitching the yeast right away and then leaving it alone until it's done would have been my course of action.
