Default Wyeast pack sat for days.

Has anyone had any issues? I activated a Wyeast 1084 smack pack Thursday evening, planning to brew on Friday. Then a two hour job turned into all day on Friday. Saturday was a way busy day with family and the approaching holidays. Finally brewed on Sunday. Yeast pack was fully expanded Friday morning. Ever have any issues with one sitting activated this long?

Air lock was bubbling Monday morning and smelling really good. Seems okay.

Thanks!

They have been none to smack themselves during transit and arrive at folk's homes already smacked. It's really no big deal, and obviously your beer is fermenting fine.

You are right. It is fermenting away, so why worry? Thanks
