Default Rats! I smacked the wrong pack.

I'm making two different starters for two different batches that I'm brewing Friday. The LHBS had a sale a while back so I picked up a few different varieties of yeast. I just now realized that I smacked the pack of yeast that I didn't want to activate now. Would it be better to keep it sealed in its original pack until I want to use it, or make a starter with it now and use that later?

Keep it in the pack and wait until you need to make a starter. No worries.

yep - just put it back in the fridge in the original pack and bring it back out when you want to make that starter.
