I would make up a starter bottle put the sachet in about 0.5 pt of warm water a couple of tea  spoons of sugar and a few drops of lemon juice plug the top of the bottle with cotton wool and keep warm You should see it start to work you can then add to the must with confidence and it saves any delay in starting the fermentation the quantity of yeast used to start a brew is not critical as it rapidly multiplys in the must .
