yep, just make sure you rock your sanitation and you're good to go. In the summer I have to do this a lot to allow the beer time to cool down to proper yeast pitching temp when the groundwater is super warm and I have trouble cooling.
So are you all saying that it is ok to pitch yeast the morning after brew day? I have heard this before but haven't had the courage to try it. I don't yet own any type of a wort cooler and I often have a hard time getting the 5 gallons of wort cooled quickly. Would leaving the wort to cool overnight and pitching the next day be ok?
