i used wort from my mash tun without boiling and pitched the wyeast in it. Did i wreck the pack of wyeast or is there a chance that it is still good? I was going to make a starter but forgot and pitched my wyeast early. Any suggestions or should i just use another pack of yeast?

I'm no expert on the subject but of I had to bet homebrew on it I would say those yeast are in yeast heaven. There is plenty of sugar in there I'm assuming, so the yeast ought to be fine. The only problem may be that simply mashing would not kill any badies that may want your wort but thd volume of yeast should insure their survival
