Default Fresh cider today but no yeast til next week??

I have a local guy who makes GREAT fresh pressed, unpasteurized cider. He is pressing today, and I am scheduled to pick up 5 gals this afternoon. The problem is, my LHBS will not have my cider yeast (White labs 775) in til one week from today - next tuesday.

Will it be ok to keep the fresh cider in the fridge for a week before actually making the hard cider / pitching the yeast???

If not, I can PROBABLY get some more fresh cider the next time he presses. Last time, he made 42 gallons and sold out in 2 hours!

Thanks for the advice!

EDIT:
Another option I have is to go with one of the yeasts I have on hand: Nottingham, S-04 or S-05

Any of those yeasts should be fine. Also, if it's unpasteurized it'll probably ferment on its own if you let it.

i would imagine that if you keep it refrigerated from the moment you get it until you get your yeast, you should be ok.
