Pitch now. The longer you wait, the more alcohol will be in there, the harder it'll be on the new yeast.

I hope you're using a blow-off tube...

Just to bring some closure to the thread...the RIS is happily fermenting away. I ended up putting 2 smack packs in, then making a starter with a third pack, which was pitched today.

It will be quite some time until I will be able to taste it, so I'll just keep my yeast happy until then and see what I end up with. Thanks again for everyone's input.
