Default Incorrectly Pitching Yeast

So last night a put a batch of cream ale into my primary fermenter. I got it out of a pre-made kit, that was a big bag of premade wort and a packet of yeast. The instructions told me to pour the yeast into a jar of warm water, let it stand for 10 minutes, then stir it and pour it into the wort. I did all this, except forgot to stir it before i poured it into the bucket. I'm not too worried, but I just wanna make sure that I didn't waste a packet of yeast. Any tips?

Thanks,
Mike

You're probably fine. The stirring is meant to kick up yeast that had settled to the bottom to make sure it all goes in to your wort. Unless you had a big yeast cake in your jar after pouring it out (which I doubt) you're totally fine.

I think your fine. The water is to rehydrate the yeast. Even without stiring it will work OK.

It's fine, watch it take off in a day or two!
