My guess is that it will be fine but I agree a starter is the best way to test it. They are easy to make. All there is to it is boil some DME (dry malt extract) and water, cool then add your yeast and shake it. Lots of tutorials online.
I also agree with @voodoo_donut that Fastpitch is a fancy and expensive route to go but it does make a starter easier. One problem is NB seems to be continually out of stock.
It would be nice if they provided not just the little ice pack but a small Styrofoam container so it didn't melt before UPS even picked it up. It would be worth a couple bucks extra .
