Default Underpitched Lager

So I brewed a 1.072 lager on Friday and grossly underpitched with 1 vial of WLP833. Still not showing any signs of fermentation and I have more yeast on order, but it will be a few days until it gets here. Right now I've got the temp set at 48, I'm wondering if I should drop it into the 30's to minimize the underpitching effects until I get more yeast and a starter ready. Any advice?

When I first started brewing lagers I pitched direct as well. They were all good beers and very drinkable. I would say let it go, it will take off eventually. You might need to do a longer d-rest but I say relax and wait it out.

yeah, from what I've read under pitched yeast can still clean up well if left enough time to sit.
