Tomorrow is supposed to be my first brew day, but I may have a problem. I got my ingredient kit as a Christmas gift. It came with a package of liquid yeast from wyeastlab. I just read the back of the package and it said to break the inner package and wait 3 hours for it to swell before using... the problem is, the bag was already swollen when I got it a few days ago. I can't feel any "inner package" so I guess it was already broken... who knows when it happened... maybe during shipping?
Is this a problem? Will it have any bad impact on my beer? I have kept the swollen package in the refrigerator since I got it. I think it is slightly less swollen now than when I first opened it if that means anything.
I found this on the wyeastlab website... it makes me feel a little better, but not much.

Do I need to postpone brew day and get more yeast?
