At least not if you want the yeast to grow.

The simple answer is yes, you could. Maybe not the best practice, but if you smacked a pack and for some reason were not going to be able to pitch it within a few days, you could put it back in the fridge for a while.

Did you already smack a pack and decide not to brew?

If you are going to brew within the next day or two, keep it out. Otherwise throw it back in the fridge.

you should be fine, put it in the fridge until your ready use it.

When you ready to use it pull it out of the fridge a couple of hours before pitching.
