Default Wyeast activated yeast

Ok so brewday got messed up. Guess I should have looked at my kit first

So if I activate the yeast am I on the clock for using it?

When can you use the yeast? If it's a few days you can put it in the fridge. Or this might be a good opportunity to make a yeast starter (which is recommended anyways) if you plan on brewing in the next day or two.

No, you can put it in the refrigerator until it is time to brew or better - make a starter for your brew day. Look up starters. The pack will ferment a batch but you should pitch the proper amount of yeast for your batch.

So you smaked the pack already and now have to wait a couple days before brewing?
