its already thurdsay, so wait, beer is usually ok for a couple days.

Since you're only a few caps short of a batch, do you have some bigger 16-24oz bottles you can use to get the # of bottles that need to be capped down?

If u must use them I would mark them and make sure they are the 1st drank
Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol.
Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day.Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life.
I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
