Default Post smack, smack pack shelf life Question

I smacked my smack pack on thursday (4 days ago) and don't have time to brew today...So realistically I will be brewing tommorrow (5 days after the smack). Will this be ok?


Facts:
- Knottingham Yeast
- Puffed up w/in 5 hours of smack
- Kept at stable 70 degree temp...


Thoughts?

It will be fine, however, it might not have been a bad idea to put it in the fridge as soon as you knew you were not going to use it immediately.

I had one recently that I smacked that sat out for about 3 days when I couldn’t brew it went into the fridge for another week. I just made up a small starter when I was finally able to brew and it woke up immediately and fermented out just fine. I would suggest making a starter for it.
